Governor Brian Sandoval has called upon all Nevadans to join him in building a New Nevada, laying out a bold vision and aggressive agenda to achieve that goal. Because a growing percentage of projected jobs in the state will require a college degree or credential in the years to come, chief among these efforts is Nevada’s focus on closing the skills gap. In 2012, 30.1 percent of Nevadans between the ages of 25 and 34 held an associate degree or higher, well below the national average of 41.1 percent. If the Silver State is to build a stronger and diversified economy, its citizens must meet or exceed Governor Sandoval’s goal that 60 percent of Nevadans between the ages of 25 and 34 will have earned some form of post-secondary degree or credential by 2025.
