APSCU Announces Vice President of Communications
Washington, DC, March 25, 2013 - Today, the Association of Private Sector Colleges & Universities (APSCU) announced that Noah Black has joined the organization as vice president of communications.
Black joins APSCU from The Harbour Group, where he served as communications counselor and lead digital strategist to the firm's clients. While at The Harbour Group, Black worked on communications campaigns for a range of clients that included education organizations, venture capital funded start-ups, trade associations and international governments.
In his new position, Black will report to APSCU President and CEO Steve Gunderson, and work closely with the APSCU Board and APSCU leadership to advance the sector's objectives and promote the importance of workforce development.
"Noah brings to APSCU higher education and workforce training communications expertise," said Steve Gunderson, president and chief executive officer of the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities. "We look forward to working with him to protect and expand access to higher education and workforce training for all students, as part of our sector's mission to train America's 21st Century Workforce."
"It is exciting to join APSCU and continue my work with this important sector of higher education. APSCU has a strong track record of helping its members reach key policymakers and stakeholders in Washington. I look forward to enhancing and strengthening this capability going forward," said Black.
PSCUs open doors to many of the 9.1 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.
