Post Secondary Value Commission
The Commission on the Value of Postsecondary Education (Postsecondary Value Commission) will focus on the economic returns of education after high school, recognizing that there are real and significant non-economic returns, such as developing critical and creative thinking skills and enhanced health and civic participation, many of which are directly related to employment and career outcomes. Drawing on current research, the commission will approach the value of certificates and degrees, at a minimum, in terms of of where a student enrolls and what they study, how much they pay for their education, whether or not they complete a credential, and their post-college earnings. Equity is at the center of the commission’s work. It is essential to understand whether and how colleges and universities create value for all students, especially low-income students and students of color, who experience greater challenges achieving certificates and degrees and realizing their economic benefits. he commission is made up of 30 leaders and experts from inside and outside higher education. Members bring a broad and diverse range of experience to this work as educators, executives, researchers, advocates, and students. And they are united in their commitment to expanding educational opportunity and ensuring that opportunity doesn’t depend on race and income.
