Indiana designates 15 as College Success Counties

– Indiana’s Higher Education Commission is recognizing 15 more of the state’s counties for their efforts to boost the number of residents completing a post-secondary education program.

The latest counties to be named College Success Counties are Benton, Blackford, DeKalb, Dubois, Elkhart, Fayette, Hamilton, Hancock, Harrison, Miami, Montgomery, Pike, Porter, Steuben and Wabash.

The designations are part of Indiana’s effort to boost the number of Hoosiers with an education beyond high school to 60 percent by 2025. Higher education commissioner Teresa Lubbers tells WIBC-FM there’s option besides four-year baccalaureate degrees. She says “there are great career pathways for people who have two-year degrees, one-year certificates and quality workforce credentials.”

Sixty-two of Indiana’s 92 counties have now been designated College Success Counties.
