APSCU Responds To Introduction Of Veterans-Related Legislation

Washington, D.C. – Former Congressman and president of the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) Steve Gunderson today issued the following statement in response to bills introduced in the U.S. Senate and House by Senator Thomas Carper and Congresswoman Jackie Speier:
 
“We applaud the Senator and Congresswoman’s efforts to promote access to higher education opportunities for our veterans.  At the present time there are productive conversations on-going between the Administration, veterans service organizations, Congress and APSCU to find positive and constructive solutions that both protect our veterans and their access to educational opportunities.  Today, between 150,000 and 200,000 veterans are getting their post-secondary education through career colleges.  With these on-going conversations, it is our goal to find solutions that prevent the need for additional legislation.”

PSCUs open doors to many of the 13 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.
