The Rocky Mountain Partnership works to identify opportunities to develop and/or shift policy and funding to positively impact economic and social mobility in the region. The group who oversees this work is called the Policy & Legislative Advisory Network (PLAN). This group works to inform a collective set of policy priorities, understand the impacts of existing legislation, monitor emerging policies and legislation, and lift opportunities for proactive policymaking.

2021 Policy Priorities

In order to realize systems change at the level of the state legislature and achieve the Partnership’s global target around postsecondary credential attainment, RMP has adopted a set of formal policy priorities for 2021. The Partnership will work to advocate for these priorities not just in the state legislature, but at a local and institutional level as well.

The priorities fall in three main areas, including:

  • Increasing Credentialing Opportunities
  • Supporting Businesses to Expand Credentialing Opportunities
  • Supporting and Expanding Online Credentialing and Location-Neutral Jobs
