Brain Gain 2010: Building Oklahoma through Intellectual Power.
Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, Oklahoma City.
The report discusses Brain Gain 2010, a strategic plan to increase the proportion of Oklahoma's population with college degrees. National figures show that states with the greatest economic success have the highest percentages of college-educated citizens. Currently, Oklahoma ranks in the bottom one-third of all states for the educational attainment of its citizens, and, consequently, for its economic performance. Brain Gain 2010 calls for 28 percent of Oklahoma's population age 25 and older to hold a bachelor's degree or higher by 2010, and 10 percent of Oklahoma's population to hold an associate degree. In 1996, 20.1 percent held a bachelor's degree or higher and 5.0 percent held an associate degree. The Regents will seek to increase the proportion of Oklahomans with an associate degree or above by: (1) undertaking a comprehensive strategy to increase the number of Oklahomans who earn a college degree; (2) working with other state leaders to develop strategies to keep more Oklahoma graduates in Oklahoma; and (3) working with other state leaders to attract to Oklahoma college degree holders from outside the state.
