Regents Looking to Set Goal for Degree-Carrying Workers in State

Members of the South Dakota Board of Regents and state university presidents have met to discuss setting a goal of getting more people ages 25-34 to carry college degrees. The Rapid City Journal has reported that the goal is get 65 percent of the state population in that age bracket to have a degree by 2025. More college degree holders will be needed in state in the next decade and the Regents believe that increasing the number of those available in the workforce will encourage them to stay in-state as well as encourage other businesses to come to South Dakota to take advantage of that educated labor force as well as the state's business-friendly laws.
