The Acting Commissioner of the Coordinating Board for Higher Education is looking forward to the post-election period when he and other education officials get a chance to meet with and talk to some of the newly elected state lawmakers. Quentin Wilson says he must make clear the importance of higher education to the state and its economy. Wilson points to three of those ways: The direct economic impact of employees and staff; the impact by the advanced economic capability of students attending institutions; and economic impacts of services provided by institutions to the business community.
