Supporting leaders in every state

Strategy Labs is a resource for state leaders to share research, data, and professional experiences to enable significantly more residents to earn degrees or other quality credentials. This platform serves as a place for state- and system-level policymakers and higher education leaders to collaboratively develop strategies that increase their states’ proportions of educated residents. Strategy Labs also creates opportunities for peer learning and delivers support from Lumina and state policy organizations.

Strategy Labs offers resources to support nonpartisan, evidence-based policy such as:

  • Meeting support, including experts and facilitators.

  • Peer-learning or multi-state discussions.

  • Testimony upon written request or policy briefings.

  • Nonpartisan research and analyses to support decision making.

Technical Assistance

Lumina provides money to states for technical assistance and consulting support.

The program provides funding to reimburse the eligible expenses of state- and locally based nonprofit organizations and governmental organizations to present and learn about higher education policy information, research, and nonpartisan analysis to advance the 60% attainment goal.
