Our Work

We're tracking America's progress toward the nation's 60% attainment goal

The nation faces an urgent and growing need for talent. To meet that need, many more people must earn college degrees, workforce certificates, industry certifications, and other high-quality credentials. That’s why Lumina Foundation focuses on an ambitious goal for educational attainment. We want to ensure that, by 2025, a system exists that is easy to navigate and has helped 60 percent of Americans earn credentials that prepare them for informed citizenship and for success in a global economy.
