Education Matters Southern Indiana
The Education Matters Southern Indiana (“EMSI”) initiative was organized by the community foundations that serve Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington counties in Indiana to strengthen our workforce and improve the economic advantages of our region by increasing the educational attainment of those adults with some form of post-secondary education but no degree or certification.
Research shows that in this ‑five county region, only 25% of the workforce has an associate’s, bachelor’s, or professional degree, compared to 38% nationally. Yet one in four – over 40,000 people – of the region’s adult workers has earned some college credits. Those 40,000 people in our ‑five counties represent an opportunity to increase the economic development of our communities, lure new businesses to our region, and enhance the quality of life for this and future generations.
To strengthen our workforce and improve the economic advantages of our region by increasing the educational attainment of adults with some post-secondary education but no degree or certification.
Goal: To increase attainment numbers by 25% in the next 5 years (10,000 people)
– Make Southern Indiana more attractive for new companies
– Keep existing companies here
– Increase the average wages of individuals
– Decrease unemployment and other ‑financial and service needs
