Indiana Higher Education Commissioner Teresa Lubbers gave her annual State of Higher Education address Wednesday night. Lubbers says the state of higher education in Indiana is strong and getting stronger, but the state has a long way to go before reaching its goal of 60-percent of Hoosiers having quality degrees and credentials.

One thing Lubbers focused on was the redesigning of the state‘s work study program — an effort to address the challenge of students lacking relevant workplace experience upon graduation.

“Re-branded as Earn Indiana, the program now offers paid internship opportunities to Hoosier students with financial need, and a wide range of relevant career experience in both the public and private sectors,” Lubbers said.

Lubbers also praised the vast majority of public colleges and universities for holding tuition increases at or below the rate of inflation.
