About the session

Based on Anthony P. Carnevale’s research and educational attainment goals recommended by the Lumina Foundation, 42 states have established attainment goals. To achieve these goals, new policies and practices are required to recruit and support underserved populations. Indiana and Ohio received grants from Lumina to support adults in their efforts to earn a high-quality credential. The state of states’ attainment goals and Indiana’s and Ohio’s efforts to achieve their goals will be discussed.

Presenters: Phyllis Cummins, Senior Research Scholar, Scripps Gerontology Center, Miami University of Ohio; James Dean Ward, Researcher, Ithaka S+R; Patricia Plantenga, Site Manager and Academic Advisor, Ivy Tech Community College – Lafayette, IN.
