Postsecondary career education consists of schools engaged in the delivery of occupational skills leading to jobs in high-demand professions. Our sector meets the needs of students – of all ages and backgrounds – seeking specific career skills and credentials.
CECU serves as the voice of career education. Representing over 1,100 campuses and affiliate members, CECU provides valuable services for members and advocates for policies that advance postsecondary career education. All CECU member schools are licensed by the states; accredited by a regional or national accreditor; and eligible to participate in the federal government’s Title IV financial aid programs.
Your membership in CECU reflects a recognition that we must speak with a unified voice as our schools face unprecedented political headwinds. CECU funds credible research, affects public policy, offers professional development opportunities, and keeps members informed through a variety of cutting-edge multimedia capabilities. And CECU events are the largest gatherings of career education professionals in North America, providing sector leaders with a venue for networking and information gathering.
