    credentials to 60 percent by 2025.

Why is the Big Goal important?
  •  
  • By 2018, 30 million new and replacement jobs
    will require some college or above.
  • By 2018, 73 million jobs will require AA degrees
    and above.
  • There will be sufficient job demand to meet
    Luminas goal however, there will be a shortfall
    in supply of people with AAs to meet demand.

13
Why Is the Adult Learner Important?
  • The country and individual states cannot develop
    a competitive workforce for the 21st century
    without them
  • The majority of the adult U.S. population (24-64
    years old) have no postsecondary degree

14
Who Should Be Our Target Population?

The Big Goal And Oklahomas Workforce Needs in
2018 Adult Learners are Key
  • By 2018, 57 of jobs in Oklahoma will require
    postsecondary education (national average63)
  • Between 2008 and 2018, Oklahoma will create
    518,000 job vacancies of which 308,000 will
    require postsecondary credentials
  • Between 2008 and 2018 new jobs requiring
    postsecondary education will grow by 87,000 while
    jobs for high school graduates and dropouts will
    grow by 59,000
  • If Oklahomas economic and workforce development
    efforts succeed the need for a college-trained
    workforce will likely intensify
