State makes small gain in college graduates

INDIANAPOLIS — Showing slow progress, Indiana is failing to make significant gains toward increasing college attainment rates, according to a Lumina Foundation report released today.

The proportion of working-age Hoosiers with a college degree crept up to 33.8 percent in 2011, the report found through Census data. That's slightly higher than the previous year's 33.2 percent.

But Indiana remains below the national average (38.7 percent) and the lowest in the Midwest in higher education attainment, ranking 41st in the country.

At this rate, Indiana will not hit its goal — nor even really come close — to have 60 percent of adults earn college degrees or certificates by 2025.
