Higher Education Act

As the reauthorization process begins, APSCU proposes a number of recommendations that should be considered by Congress. Each proposed change works towards meeting three essential goals:

  • Affordability and the Skills Gap
  • Simplification
  • Accountability and Transparency
Achieving these goals is critical as American strives to meet the challenge of leading the world in the proportion of college-education citizens by 2020. Private sector colleges and universities are helping meet this challenge and are addressing the nagging skills gap that currently plagues our nation.

PSCUs open doors to many of the 9 million unemployed and 90 million undereducated Americans by providing a skills-based education. To remain competitive over the next decade, we must identify between 8 and 23 million new workers with postsecondary skills. PSCUs are a necessary part of that solution, having produced over 800,000 degrees last year alone.
