Higher Education in Colorado: Our Challenges and Our Goals
A Brief Overview
Colorado Commission on Higher Education

Colorado’s Higher Education Challenges
Workforce needs – We won’t have enough educated
Coloradans to fill our state’s jobs in 2020.

Education pipeline – Fewer than 25 percent of Colorado
9th-graders earn a college degree.

Completion gaps – The fastest-growing segments of our population are least likely to earn a degree.

Shifting financial burden – The share of college costs paid by students has doubled in 10 years.

Challenge: Workforce Needs
For every 100 9th-graders in Colorado:
50 go to college
22 earn a college degree

through better remedial education, enhanced support services and reduced average time to degree completion.
