PURPOSE: Reaching Higher, Achieving More calls for a system of higher education that is Student-Centered, Mission-Driven and Workforce-Aligned. The Commission's work will focus on three Challenges:

Completion: Students and the state are not well served by an empty promise of college access without completion.

Productivity: A more productive higher education system will increase student success and safeguard college affordability.

Quality: Increasing college completion and productivity must not come at the expense of academic quality.
