Blueprint 2030, the State Regents new strategic plan, will guide our state system of higher education over the next several years with four fundamental goals: produce workforce-ready graduates, grow the student pipeline, focus on student success, and improve system efficiency and effectiveness. To produce workforce-ready graduates, higher education must serve as stewards by connecting students to the workforce. Supporting this initiative requires support from institutional offices of career services. The State Regents have established the Career Services Council, composed of representatives from each state system institution. The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education facilitated the council’s first meeting in May 2023, and the council will meet quarterly to share best practices and promote institutional collaboration.
