MEC and Accelerate MS will conduct eight regional Ecosystem listening tours to gather essential information to help inform the strategic planning for Mississippi’s Ascent to 55% initiative.
The Ascent to 55% initiative is made possible by a 1 million dollar grant from the Woodward Hines Education Foundation to the Public Education Forum (a subsidiary of the MS Economic Council) spread over four years to develop and execute a strategic plan to guide policy and develop marketing to increase the number of Mississippians with credentials of value.
The current attainment level for Mississippi is 45.2%, with the goal of reaching a 55% attainment level by 2030 and 60% by 2035.
