Career Education Colleges and Universities Submits Comments on Proposed Defense to Repayment Regulation
Washington, DC – August 1, 2016 – Today, Career Education Colleges and Universities (CECU), the voice of the nation’s postsecondary career education schools, called upon the U.S. Department of Education to withdraw its proposed Defense to Repayment regulation and instead work collaboratively with all stakeholders to create a more clear and fair process.
June 13, 2016 - Washington, DC - The below can be attributed to Steve Gunderson, president and CEO of Career Education Colleges and Universities:
"The regulation put forth today by the U.S. Department of Education will cause millions of students to lose access to higher education and leave American taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars. How this will increase the number of career ready graduates, is unclear.
March 18, 2016 - Washington, DC - Much like the gainful employment regulation before it, the likely action by the U.S. Department of Education on defense of repayment is nothing more than a very thinly vailed attempt to deny higher education access and opportunity to new traditional students that rely on our institutions. Effort like these put the future of career education in America at risk.
