2014 APSCU Convention

5 Reasons to Attend
the 2014 APSCU Hill Day

The 2014 APSCU Hill Day is coming up on March 3-5. If you haven’t registered yet, here are five reasons why you should attend this year:

  1. Because YOUR story matters

    The gainful employment regulation will cut off access to postsecondary education for hundreds of thousands of students and shut down thousands of programs. Don’t let this regulation harm access for students.

  2. Showing up is the best way to be heard by lawmakers

    Every good grassroots campaign includes a face-to-face component because it’s widely-known that the strongest messages are the ones personally delivered. Showing up and sharing your story with a member of Congress holds a greater impact on their decision than 100 letters.

  3. Join hundreds of others

    There is strength in numbers especially when it comes to issues in Congress. Meeting hundreds of other individuals with similar interests and viewpoints on the same issue can be a beneficial and rewarding experience for you and your institution.

  4. Meet your representative

    You might be shy to meet your elected official, but don’t be. The truth is your member of Congress is more than eager to meet you and hear what you have to say. An integral part of their job is meeting with their constituents and representing their viewpoints in Washington.

  5. Experience Capitol Hill

    What better way to experience the rich history of Washington, DC than to make history yourself. Anyone can take a tour of the Capitol building, but only a few can say they actually met with their member of Congress and made a difference on an important issue.

800k graduates

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.
