Supply/Demand Gap Analysis 2014-2024 State System of Higher Education

data.pa.gov | Last Updated 26 Sep 2017

Universities have historically operated under a supply-driven model, wherein learners seek out programs and degrees offered by the institution regardless of business need. In order to better align programs and identify opportunities for university and learner success, new approaches must be undertaken at various levels within the institution. To address this need, the State System conducted original research in 2016 and produced Pennsylvania’s first comprehensive gap analysis study.
