The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education present Blueprint 2030: Innovating and Elevating Oklahoma Higher Education for Tomorrow’s Workforce (PDF, 3.4m), which will guide our state system of higher education over the next several years. This bold Strategic Plan emphasizes the key role Oklahoma’s public colleges and universities play in producing the state’s workforce, including teachers, engineers, doctors, nurses and a host of other professionals who serve our state daily.
The State Regents charged the Strategic Planning Committee to develop recommendations that increase Oklahoma’s educational attainment, align higher education with state workforce needs, and leverage system resources more effectively and efficiently. During the strategic planning process, the committee studied our state system’s current challenges and strengths, identified areas for improvement, and reviewed best practices to produce a comprehensive set of recommendations that are ambitious, yet achievable.
Blueprint 2030: Innovating and Elevating Oklahoma Higher Education for Tomorrow’s Workforce is anchored by four fundamental goals:
- Produce workforce-ready graduates
- Grow the student pipeline
- Focus on student success
- Improve system efficiency and effectiveness
Our Strategic Plan looks toward Oklahoma’s bright future and reflects the State Regents’ commitment to leading a responsive, forward-thinking and data-driven state system of higher education. The innovative strategies contained in this Strategic Plan will guide the work of the State Regents, the 25 public colleges and universities that comprise our state system of higher education, and our agency staff.
