APSCU Responds to U.S. Department of Education Decision to Not Appeal Gainful Employment Litigation

Washington, D.C., May 22, 2013—APSCU President and CEO Steve Gunderson released the following statement:

“We are very pleased to see that the Education Department has chosen to not continue gainful employment litigation. With Congress expected to undertake Higher Education Reauthorization in the coming months, we hope Congress will help all institutions of higher education, and the department, determine where and how we create appropriate protocols to determine outcomes for all students at all institutions. We are committed to working closely with the department to educate students and prepare them for in-demand jobs.”

PSCUs are a necessary part of that solution, having produced over 800,000 degrees last year alone.
