"Lumina’s revised strategic plan" is a podcast interview with Dewayne Matthews, current Vice President for Policy and Strategy with Lumina Foundation. Matthews discuss how Lumina’s strategic plan for 2013-2016 builds upon the goal of a 60% degree attainment rate by 2025. The current strategic plan provides a roadmap for how to fill the 23 million student attainment gap by 2025. Highlighting several aspects to the roadmap, Matthews also discusses the importance of state authorization reciprocity agreements (SARA) and the inclusion of education innovations into the mainstream of higher education to achieve this goal. Matthews discusses the importance of the federal government’s role going forward, the changing landscape of philanthropy in the higher education, and the public’s desire for a redesign of higher education based upon Lumina’s work with Gallup.

Interview facilitation, commentary and discussion presented by Kathryn Dodge, Alison Griffin, and Elise Scanlon of Radio Higher Ed.
