Klamath Community College
- 40-40-20 goal
Gov. John Kitzhaber has set the 40-40-20 goal, to have 40 percent of adults with four-year college degrees, 40 percent with two-year degrees and the remaining 20 percent earning high school diplomas or an equivalent, all by 2025.
A partnership between Klamath Community College and Oregon State University allowing students to earn a four-year-degree from OSU on the KCC campus will help with that goal, said KCC President Roberto Gutierrez.
“If we are able to meet that goal, it will be because other colleges and universities forge partnerships similar to what we are trying to do between us and Oregon State,” Gutierrez said in a press release.

Officials at Klamath Community College and Oregon State University are still working on a partnership that could allow students to stay in Klamath Falls and earn a bachelor’s degree in agriculture from OSU.
“The goal is to better serve place-bound students,” Willie Riggs, director of the OSU Klamath Basin Research and Extension Center, said in a press release. “For local students to be able to complete both associate and bachelor degrees right here in Klamath Falls would open a lot of doors for people who otherwise may not have that opportunity.”
