The Lumina Foundation’s A Stronger Nation report on post-secondary attainment has been the leading source of information about progress toward national attainment goals since it was first published in 2009. The 2016 edition, which will be released on Monday, April 11 as part of a special presentation, will include the latest degree attainment data as well as the first-ever nationally representative data showing Americans’ attainment of high-quality post-secondary certificates.

Dr. Bustamante
Rio Salado President Chris Bustamante will be taking part in Monday’s #StrongerNation presentation hosted by the Lumina Foundation, as part of a panel of national experts.

The panel will discuss issues such as the fundamental inequities in post-secondary education; changing workforce requirements; the social, economic, and community impact of low attainment rates; and other related issues. The panel discussion will be moderated by Nirvi Shah, deputy editor for policy at POLITICO Pro.

We encourage you to take part by watching a live stream of the event, 12-2 p.m. Arizona time, and by engaging in the dialogue online using #StrongerNation
