💥 What's the Big Deal: 

With 72% of jobs requiring postsecondary education by 2031,📈 the Pacific region's commitment to education will be pivotal in shaping a robust and skilled workforce of the future. 

The "big deal" about the job projections and educational requirements through 2031 is that they highlight a significant shift in the job market that will affect the Pacific community.🎓 As technology advances and industries evolve, the nature of work is changing rapidly. 👩‍🏫By 2031, most jobs will require higher education and specialized skills. This shift underscores the importance of investing in the workforce for future demands.

For the Pacific region, 🌊this means creating educational programs and training opportunities that in sync with the projected job market. It's about ensuring that the current and future workforce is equipped with the necessary skills to thrive in an increasingly competitive and technologically driven economy.🤝 The focus on education will not only benefit individuals in their career aspirations, opening doors to new opportunities and personal growth, but also contribute to the economic growth and stability of the Pacific community. 🔧 It's a call to action for policymakers, educators, and industry leaders to collaborate and create pathways that lead to gainful employment and a prosperous society.

The "big deal" is about proactive adaptation to ensure that the Pacific's workforce isn't left behind in the global race for innovation and economic leadership. It's about building a resilient community that can confidently face tomorrow's challenges.

🎓IMSPARK: Higher Education for All in the Pacific🎓

🎓Imagine... Higher Education for All in the Pacific🎓

💡 Imagined Endstate: 

The Pacific region has successfully increased the access and affordability of higher education for its residents, especially for underrepresented and disadvantaged groups. The region has fostered a culture of lifelong learning, innovation, and excellence, where everyone has the opportunity to pursue their academic and career goals.



Halliday, T., & Inafuku, R. (2024). Estimating the returns to higher education using administrative data: A case study of the University of Hawai‘i System. University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization.

💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

The report by Halliday and Inafuku (2024) reveals that a college education from the University of Hawai‘i (UH) offers a significant investment return for its graduates🌏The authors find that lifetime earnings for bachelor’s degree holders are 27% higher than for those who exited the program without a degree. 💼 The report also shows that community college degrees and certificates can boost earnings and serve as stepping stones to four-year degrees.

Higher education is a key driver of economic and social development for the Pacific region, especially in the face of global challenges such as climate change, health crises, and technological disruption. 🏫By expanding the access and affordability of higher education, the Pacific region can empower its residents to acquire the skills, knowledge, and credentials they need to succeed in the 21st century. 🚀Higher education can also enhance the region’s competitiveness, diversity, and resilience, and contribute to its well-being and prosperity.
