    65% by 2025: Post-secondary Education, Workers, Employers & the Alaskan Economy

    What is the Challenge?

    Depending on who you ask - by 2020, up to 66% of Alaskan jobs will require some type of postsecondary education

    Regardless of who you ask, we are:

    • Headed for a shortage of workers with postsecondary education in Alaska’s highest-demand, highest-paying industries
    • Already facing an insufficient supply of industry certifications in the skilled trades

    Why do we need to get to 65% by 2025?

    • To build the competitive workforce our employers need
    • To encourage economic development in Alaska
    • To strengthen the earnings potential and increase employment stability for more Alaskans

    What’s the Focus?

    • Partnerships, Transitions, & Pathways
    • Professional Development & Networking
    • Statewide Messaging
    • Research & Data Collection
