Military veteran students, alumni, faculty and staff from Career Education Colleges and Universities member schools are in Washington, DC this week to speak with their elected representatives in Congress about the importance of protecting veterans’ access to career education.
Analysis by NDP Analytics reveals that more than 400 public and private nonprofit colleges and universities would fail the 90/10 rule. The research, commissioned by Career Education Colleges and Universities (CECU), uses an expanded 90/10 formula provided in a recent report published under the Brookings Institution. The expanded 90/10 rule includes state and local appropriations and grants and military and veteran education benefits.
NDP Analytics projects that up to 158,000 veterans could lose the ability to use their military and veteran education benefits at the school and program of their choice. The research, commissioned by Career Education Colleges and Universities (CECU), looks at the potential impact of proposals in Congress to consider military and veterans benefits as economic subsidies similar to Pell Grants and federal loans.
Today, after the publication of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s higher education proposal, Career Education Colleges and Universities president and CEO Steve Gunderson, released the following statement:
Steve Gunderson, President & CEO of Career Education Colleges & Universities issued the following statement:
“There are two facts of life related to postsecondary education. First, every student and family deserve to know the success or failure of every program/college they are considering. Second, there are good and bad programs across all schools in all sectors. We should join now in a bi-partisan consensus to collect and share maximum transparency of such outcomes. And then, any school with bad program outcomes should improve or drop the program. It’s that simple.
March 11, 2019 – Steve Gunderson, President & CEO of Career Education Colleges & Universities issued the following statement:
“Once again, schools that are not members of CECU are abruptly closing causing untold, and unacceptable damage to their students. In doing so, these schools just disappear. But all the multi-generation family-owned schools in our sector are left with a bad reputation created by somebody else."
The nation’s postsecondary career education colleges and universities produced 597,337 career professionals in 2017 according to a report released today. These results come despite an overall decrease in the number of schools and students in the sector, but they do not slow the sector’s “Campaign to Create 5 Million Career Professionals” within a decade.
“In the first two years of this campaign, our schools have produced 1,227,129 new career professionals.” said Steve Gunderson, president and CEO of Career Education Colleges and Universities. “While our sector’s total enrollment has declined, the growth in academic awards has substantially increased as we focus on student completions.”
