Dr. Sabrina Kay
I grew up in the career college industry. From my first job as an admissions representative, to the past 20 years of being a school founder, owner, operator, shareholder, and board member of several institutions, I have always been extremely passionate about how our sector inspires and transforms students’ lives. It pains me to see how legislators and consumer advocate groups take opportunities away from the students we serve for the wrong reasons - sometimes for political gain, other times, due to inaccurate perceptions.
To counteract these challenges, I have expanded my horizons and took on various leadership positions within and outside of our sector. I became a vocal advocate to political, civic, and business communities, and an active participant in both APSCU and state career college associations. My contribution has been to bring diverse and fair views to those who affect our lives by serving in leadership roles and being an educated connector to legislators, media, as well as other sectors of higher education such as the corporate university community and Ivy League institutions.

PSCUs open doors to many of the 13 million unemployed and 90 million underemployed 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.
