INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Indiana Commission for Higher Education will be honoring 15 counties across Indiana for establishing a College Success Coalition. The counties are part of a growing statewide network of 62 county coalitions working to increase the number of Hoosiers with education and training beyond high school. The state hopes to support the development of College Success Coalitions in the remaining 30 counties over the next year.
“We are proud of our partnership with the current 62 county coalitions in Indiana and the opportunities they are providing students in their communities,” said Lubbers. “We are hopeful that local leaders in all 92 counties will see the exciting progress these coalitions are making and join us in this statewide movement in the coming year.”
