The Illinois Public Agenda for College and Career Success - One Illinois

A Blueprint for the Future of Illinois

[ IBHE | About Us ]

Welcome to the future of Illinois.

This website –1illinois.org– is the portal to the Illinois Public Agenda for College and Career Success, a 10-year strategic plan to guide policymakers in addressing the state’s economic imperatives in the global marketplace and meeting the educational and workforce needs of its residents.

The Illinois Public Agenda documents the untenable conclusion that Illinois has become divided into two states: one educated and prosperous, the other struggling to achieve educational success and financial security. The Illinois Public Agenda for College and Career Success is the pathway to one Illinois, where all residents have affordable access to high-quality educational opportunities that prepare them for the jobs of the present and the future.

The Public Agenda encompasses four goals designed to eliminate barriers and foster opportunities for all Illinoisans to achieve their educational aspirations and to build an economically vibrant and competitive state of Illinois.

Goal 1: Increase educational attainment
Goal 2: Improve college affordability
Goal 3: Strengthen workforce development
Goal 4: Link research and innovation to  economic growth
