ATLANTA (WRCB) -- Georgia Governor Nathan Deal Monday released the college completion plans submitted by every institution in the University System of Georgia and the Technical College System of Georgia. This makes Georgia the first state in the country to have a completion plan for every public institution of higher education.
In Georgia, the plans detail how the different school systems will meet Deal's goal of adding 250,000 post-secondary graduates to Georgia's rolls by 2020. The call for the completion plans was part of the governor's Complete College Georgia initiative launched last August.
A study done last year by Georgetown University found that, to meet projected workforce needs, Georgia must increase the percentage of its population that holds a post-secondary credential from 42 percent to 60 percent over the next eight years.
The full completion plans for institutions in the University System of Georgia and the Technical College system of Georgia are available online, using the links below.
