In his State of the State address earlier this year, Montana Governor Steve Bullock laid out his goal to raise the number of college degrees, from 40 percent to 60 percent.
Governor Bullock announced his Complete College Montana Initiative today at the capitol. Under the plan, Montana will join with 33 other states in making changes to increase college graduates.
"I should note though, this isn't about joining a cookie cutter initiative or saying that Montana's going to do what 32 other states are already doing," Bullock said. "This is about bringing Montanans together, getting assistance from national expertise, to do right by our students, with Montana made solutions."
The Board of Regents is expected to lead the way in making college easier to achieve. The plan will include dual college credits, and an academic map for ensuring students get the most out of their money.
