Higher Education Coordinating Council

[Skip Navigation]


Request for Proposals - Recognizing the need for an educated workforce, the Higher Education Coordinating Council has set a postsecondary attainment goal that at least 55 percent of working-age Floridians will have a degree or high quality credential by 2025. National estimates suggest that by 2020, 63 percent of jobs will require a postsecondary credential.

To drive community collaboration and articulate a clear message about the importance of postsecondary education attainment and the value/benefit of postsecondary education to each individual and to our state, the HECC is seeking proposals (RFP) from qualified firms for education communications and services. The deadline is noon, Friday, July 7, 2017. Detailed information and requirements are included here.


The HECC will meet by conference call on July 13, 2017. The time of the meeting will be 9:30 a.m. until 11:0 a.m. or until the conclusion of business.

The purpose of this meeting is a follow up to the conference call held on June 5, regarding the Council’s Statewide Degree Attainment and College Completion Initiative. Members will receive a status report on the strategic plan and any recommendations from the small task groups, as assigned by the chair. An agenda for this meeting will be posted online closer to the meeting date.
