Informing Progress Toward Oregon’s State Goals
The Higher Education Coordinating Commission is responsible for conducting data collection, analysis, reporting, and research on all sectors of postsecondary education in Oregon. The HECC data resources are used to inform policy and funding decisions, and to uphold important requirements for transparency and accountability in an effort to achieve Oregon's state goals for higher education.
Oregon has one of highest reaching state goals for education in the country. The state's "40-40-20" education goal is for every Oregonian to earn at least the equivalent of a high school diploma, and for 80% of Oregonians to earn a postsecondary credential to prepare them for success in the global economy.
