APSCU Statement On Election 2012

Washington, D.C. – Former Congressman Steve Gunderson, the president and chief executive officer of the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) today released the following statement in response to the 2012 Election:

"In a nation deeply divided, and facing incredible financial challenges, APSCU looks forward to working with our higher education colleagues and the President and the Congress to increase access for all students pursuing a postsecondary education.  We will only accomplish these goals through cooperation, not confrontation.  Election data shows that students served by private sector colleges and universities were a key element of the President’s political coalition.  We are ready to work together to give these students the tools and support they need to attain their goals and help close the skills gap facing the U.S. workforce."

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.
