About the LiftEd: Collaborating for Student and System Success

LiftEd: Collaborating for Student and System Success is a FREE one-day conference for educational leaders from across Ohio to gather to explore innovative strategies that will help increase the number of Ohioans that earn a college degree and help prepare potential employees for the workforce demands of Ohio’s knowledge economy.

Jones is widely recognized for his work in such areas as developing public agendas to guide state higher education policymaking; establishing approaches to accountability; financing, budgeting, and resource allocation methodologies for use at both state and institutional levels; linking higher education with states' workforce and economic development needs; and developing and using information to inform policymaking.
