What does the average net price reflect?
On the Community Profile Slide- How do you anticipate Agriculture would fit here?
@Rose Patzer - average cost for college (what students pay) taking into account grants and scholarships.
@Jeff Miller - I think Ag may be under-represented in that specific data set - but Erin will share some forecast on Ag in the SW and we may see a decline in growth up to even -6% in the next 10 years.
Naturally- Less family farms, poor prices, etc.
What's the current poverty ceiling for annual income ($$) in our region?
@Rose Patzer - I'll see if Erin has a poverty threshold number specific to the SW area. I see 26,200 for a family of four nationally 2020. Here are a couple tools to find poverty thresholds by county and by family size: https://livingwage.mit.edu/states/https://www.payingforseniorcare.com/federal-poverty-level#48-Contiguous-States-and-D.C.27/locations
Denise - I have to hop off. I you could jot down any further questions or share them with Erin?
How critical Health Occupations are to the region
As a resident of Marshall, I was astounded that we're at 18.3% poverty - yet, one of the lowest youth feelind detached inour state.
If the employment areas of growth require a Masters degree in the future, this is going to further the gap between unemployment/poverty/and helping people earn a fair wage
Anticipating how technology will change some of these occupations moving forward.
Rural Poverty is real and is an equity issue
The level of education of people in the region.
Career and technical education and guidance needs to start in middle school if not before
This information is what we use to determine what programs we continue to offer
Understanding these differences and how to strategize to overcome the obstacles.
We need to support programs to make connections between secondary and postsecondary
Health care gaps are at the top of the list, yet we have an abundance of educational opportunities for those fields in our 29 counties.
employers need to look at projects and changing how employment and hiring looks if they want to truly diversify the work force and invest in our southern MN workforce
helping rural students understand that careers in healthcare beyond NURSING
We can develop strategies through the Equity By Design campus initiative and link that work to our Perkins work on equity
WE have to meet students where they are not where we are.
