  • Action: Our articles and editorials are written with a real intent to spark action and awareness within the sector while also demanding change on the part of political leaders.
  • Develop: Develop partnerships with employers to assist work transition for career college graduates.
  • Voice: We open the pages of our magazine and website to school leaders who want to share their opinions on the most important issues of the day.
  • Original Perspective: Given the lack of media providing a fair and balanced view of the for-profit education sector, our reports, blogs and related content share a unique perspective on the industry not found anywhere else.
  • Communication: Through our social media outlets and aggregation efforts, we share information critical to the sector and continue conversations that provide real answers to the sector’s challenges.
  • Aggregate: We collect the news influencing career education and disseminate it to executives and leaders in the sector to raise awareness about potential threats and opportunities.
  • Ties: The career college sector of higher education has always been a tight-knit group of forward-thinking educators. Our efforts strengthen those ties by creating communication outlets for them to rally around and share ideas.
  • Educate: Our reports help those within and outside of our sector understand the real value of for-profit education.
