TN Governor Wants College Graduation Rates at 55% Instead of 32%

  Email   Print
Republican Gov. Bill Haslam says he wants to set Tennessee on a path toward boosting college graduation rates from 32% to 55% by 2025. Haslam said in a release this week that he has appointed Randy Boyd, chairman of wireless pet fence maker Radio Systems Corp., to help further that goal as his top higher education adviser. 
 
Haslam said Boyd will join a working group tasked with finding ways to tackle what the governor called the “iron triangle” of affordability, access and quality issues for public colleges and universities in Tennessee. The panel is made up of the governor and the heads of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, Tennessee Board of Regents and the University of Tennessee systems. Boyd will work full time but won’t be paid.
