Postsecondary Attainment Rates Rose Slightly in 2014

The percentage of working-age Americans with two- or four-year college degrees in 2014 rose to 40.4 percent, up slightly from 40 percent in 2013, a report from the Lumina Foundation finds.

This year, for the first time, the report, A Stronger Nation 2016, also includes data on the attainment of high-quality postsecondary certificates — in addition to associate's and bachelor's degrees — which, when included, brings the overall postsecondary attainment rate to 45.3 percent. Still, the current rate of year-over-year increases in degree and certificate attainment is insufficient to put Goal 2025 — the foundations stated commitment to raise the percentage of Americans with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60 percent by 2025 — within reach. Indeed, the foundation projects that if current trends continue, the postsecondary degree and certificate attainment rate will be closer to 53.9 percent in 2025.

To see the report go to https://www.luminafoundation.org/files/publications/stronger_nation/2016/A_Stronger_Nation-2016-Full.pdf

According to the report — which includes demographic and geographic breakdowns of degree and certificate attainment rates by state and select metro areas — degree and certificate attainment rates for African Americans (34.2 percent) and Latinos (26.0 percent) continue to lag those of whites (49.7 percent). The study also found that the attainment rate among Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 is rising faster than that of working-age adults overall, reaching 42.3 percent in 2014, compared to 41.6 percent in 2013. The report notes that a 2015 Gallup/Lumina poll found that 59 percent of respondents believed that education beyond high school is available to anyone who needs it, yet only 24 percent thought it was affordable for all.

"The secret to individual and societal success is talent — the knowledge, skills, and abilities of our citizens — but right now, our nation lacks sufficient talent to meet the demands of the global job market," said Lumina Foundation president and CEO Jamie Merisotis. "Many of those who see education beyond high school as valuable and essential aren't able to attain postsecondary credentials in today's environment. Closing that gap or increasing attainment equity is an economic imperative and will require a shift in the way we think about higher education to include and better serve non-traditional learners."

Index of Poverty Rose in 2015

The level of human need in the United States increased 15 percent on a year-over-year basis in 2015, a report from the Salvation Army and Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University finds.

Based on aggregate data tracking seven services commonly delivered by nonprofits — meals provided, groceries, clothing, housing, furniture, medical assistance, and help with energy bills — the Human Needs Index found that the level of need nationwide fell from 3.00 in 2012 to 2.57 in 2013 and 1.97 in 2014, but rose to 2.28 in 2015 — with increases in all categories except groceries provided. North Dakota had the highest HNI score, followed by Nevada, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Colorado, Arkansas, Kansas, Alaska, the District of Columbia, and Michigan. Arkansas, Alabama, Colorado, South Carolina, and West Virginia saw the greatest year-over-year increases in their HNI values.

An online poll commissioned by the Salvation Army found that 55.2 percent of respondents personally know someone they consider to be poor or living in poverty. In addition, 89.5 percent of respondents believe it is difficult or somewhat difficult to escape poverty, while 64.2 percent believe the government or elected officials should be responsible for helping people living in poverty and 17.3 percent believe self-determination is the most important thing for people struggling with poverty.

"The increased need in 2015 likely is due at least in part to the fact that a number of economic indicators grew more slowly in 2015 than in 2014," said Una Osili, director of research for the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. "The 2015 Human Needs Index value is similar to values seen prior to 2014, making clear that significant pockets of need remain in many places in the U.S. since the Great Recession."

Lupus Research Institute Seeks Applications for Distinguished Innovator Awards

SOURCE: Lupus Research Institute (LRI)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 7/8/16.

$ AVAILABLE: LRI expects to award up to four grants of up to $250,000 per year over four years.

ELIGIBILITY: Successful applicants must be an outstanding investigator who has demonstrated creativity and productivity in his/her field of research. Applications from investigators in diverse disciplines, including but not limited to immunology, genetics, and molecular, cell and systems biology are encouraged. Scientists who have not previously worked in lupus also are encouraged to apply, as are researchers working outside the United States. Applicants must hold a position at an academic institution.

PURPOSE: The Lupus Research Institute is inviting applications for its Dr. William E. Paul Distinguished Innovator Awards in Lupus and Autoimmunity, a global program designed to provide outstanding scientists with support to conduct novel research on the fundamental causes of lupus.

To that end, LRI welcomes novel, hypothesis- or discovery-driven proposals in human and/or animal model-based lupus research. The research must aim to uncover the fundamental causes of lupus and present a compelling vision of how the discovery would lay the groundwork for a potential cure, prevention, or highly effective therapy.
