2016 Nebraska Higher Education Progress Report
Nebraska's Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education
The 2016 Nebraska Higher Education Progress Report is the 12th annual progress report designed to provide the Nebraska Legislature with comparative statistics to monitor and evaluate progress toward achieving three key priorities for Nebraska's postsecondary education system. These priorities were developed by the 2003 LR 174 Higher Education Task Force and described in detail in a 2004 report published by the Coordinating Commission. They are: (1) Increase the number of students who enter postsecondary education in Nebraska; (2) Increase the percentage of students who enroll and successfully complete a degree; and (3) Reduce, eliminate and then reverse the net out-migration of Nebraskans with high levels of educational attainment. This report is a comparative analysis that measures and evaluates performance in respect to each priority. The following are appended: (1) Nebraska College Enrollments; (2) Actual and Projected Numbers of Nebraska High School Graduates; (3) Nebraska High School Graduation Rates; (4) Nebraska Scores on ACT and SAT Student Assessments; (5) Nebraska College Continuation Rates; (6:) Nebraska and Non-Nebraska, First-Time Freshmen Migration Data; (7) Nebraska First-Time Freshmen Enrollments by Race/Ethnicity; (8) Financial Aid Programs; (9) IPEDS Freshmen Retention Rates; (10) IPEDS College Graduation Rates; (11) IPEDS College Transfer Rates; (12) National Student Clearinghouse Research Center Study: Six-Year Student Success Outcomes and College Completion Rates for Nebraska and the United States; and (13) Estimated Nebraska Net Migration of 22- to 64-Year Olds.
