Title:Second to none in attainment, discovery, and innovation: The national agenda for higher education
Organization:State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO)
Short Description:The State Higher Education Executive Officers issued a white paper for presidential candidates
Annotation:The State Higher Education Executive Officers issued a white paper for presidential candidates. Arguing that the next President will have the “greatest opportunity—and face the greatest necessity—since the 1950s to lead the nation to sustainable prosperity,” the paper lays out two goals: (1)"Second to None in Educational Attainment: One million more degrees and certificates per year." The authors propose that the fastest and most effective way to reach this goal is “to focus policies and resources on the students who are not now succeeding in our colleges and universities”—generally low-income, first-generation, or working adults of all ethnic groups. (2)"Second to None in Discovery and Innovation: World leader in science, technology, and the advancement of knowledge." This goal requires deeper federal investments in science and technology. The paper cites three areas that need urgent attention: re-engineering student assistance, improving data and quality assurance systems, and sustaining and advancing discovery and innovation.
