The theme of the Big Goal Summit this year is “Think Regionally, Act Locally.”
At the Summit, we will hear a presentation on "Thriving Communities, Thriving State" from IUPUI to frame the discussion around the following topics:
- access to post-secondary opportunities,
- completion of those programs, and
- retention of talent.
The Big Goal is one of seven priorities identified by the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership’s Vision 2020 regional initiative. It aims to increase the percentage of Northeast Indiana residents with high-quality degrees or credentials to 60 percent by 2025. To become a global competitor and transform our economy, Northeast Indiana must work together to reach the Big Goal.
