The Economic Imperative for Increasing Attainment

The future prosperity of Acadiana depends on a fundamental commitment to education as a top regional priority. To ensure Acadiana is globally competitive, the region requires a strong and well-educated workforce. It is our firm belief that no accomplishment will be more critical to our future as a region.

To that end, our regional goal is to increase the proportion of working-age adults in Acadiana with postsecondary degrees, certificates, or other high-value credentials to 55 percent by 2025.

This goal will be met by ensuring a strong cradle through career education system, providing opportunities for the current labor pool to gain new skills, and attracting and retaining talented people in Acadiana.
