This report, Blurring Boundaries: Transforming Place, Policies, and Partnerships for Postsecondary Education Attainment in Metropolitan Areas, examines efforts to improve educational attainment rates in select metropolitan statistical areas by considering policies that either inhibit or facilitate degree production, and identifying metropolitan-level, cross-sector collaborations that help local leaders contribute to national completion goals. Through five case studies, the report also presents a set of recommendations for policymakers and community leaders as they consider resources, programs, and policies for raising attainment.
