About this Event

Alaska is one of a handful of states for which their 35- to 64-year population have higher rates of degree completion than do 18- to 34-year olds. Meanwhile, the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development projects that roughly 65% of Alaska’s fastest-growing, high-wage jobs will require some form of post-high school credential by the year 2020. Focused action to improve postsecondary access and completion is critical.
