APSCU Responds To President Obama's State Of The Union Address

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address, Brian Moran, interim president and CEO of the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities released the following statement:
 
“APSCU applauds the President’s blueprint for the American economy and private sector colleges and universities are well positioned to help reach the President’s goal of two million American skilled workers.  Accounting for 47 percent of certificate completions in the U.S., private sector schools offer a range of programs designed to prepare students for in-demand occupations.  Our schools provide career-focused education for American students who are seeking to enter today’s workforce and immediately begin their career path. 
 
“We look forward to working with the President to ensure that all Americans have access to a high-quality education so they can develop the skills needed to compete and succeed in the 21st Century workforce.”

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.
