University System of Georgia Strategic Plan
Strategic Goal Four:
Strengthen the USG’s partnerships with the state’s other education
Strategic Plan in Action
More Georgians need postsecondary education. Only 27% of Georgians aged 25 years or older have a bachelor’s degree or higher. The changing Georgia job market is increasingly demanding at least some postsecondary education. Jobs that do not require postsecondary education are steadily decreasing.
