TINLEY PARK – Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will kick off the 2012 College Changes Everything conference on Thursday morning in Tinley Park. The conference, coordinated by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, brings together educators, legislators and other advocates to work towards the state’s college completion goal. To keep pace with employer needs, the state wants 60 percent of working-age adults to hold a college degree or credential by 2025, up from 41 percent today.

In her opening remarks, Simon will discuss two of her college completion initiatives. She crafted legislation signed by Governor Quinn this month that aims to reduce remedial needs at colleges and universities by implementing the state’s first middle school and high school math curricula. She also wants to create College Choice Reports for Illinois colleges and universities so prospective students can compare higher education options and make good choices about where to pursue certificates and degrees.

TIME: 8:30 a.m.

DATE: Thursday, July 12

PLACE: Tinley Park Convention Center, 18451 Convention Center Drive, Tinley Park
