State Priorities for Higher Education Survey

States face numerous important higher education policy issues each year, with some topics consistently among the top priorities for policymakers while others represent emerging public policy concerns. To better understand state priorities and ways SHEEO can assist its members, each year SHEEO conducts the State Priorities for Higher Education Survey.

We provide an initial list of issues based on common themes derived from the daily SHEEO policy updates, which include news and updates related to state and national higher education policy. From this list of issues, we ask state higher education executive officers to look toward the upcoming year and identify the importance of each higher education issue in their state.
