What’s Next for For-Profit Higher Education?
Date: November 30, 2016
Time: 12:30–1:30 PM EST
The for-profit higher education sector grew rapidly during the first decade of the 2000s. But in recent years, the sector has been hit hard: Faced with greater accountability pressures, reports of malfeasance, and concerns about low outcomes, for-profit colleges have experienced declining enrollments, and two major providers have shut down.
There is now considerable evidence on the economic value of for-profit higher education—both the costs of attending a for-profit college and the labor market benefits after graduation. This CAPSEE webinar reviewed this evidence and considered its implications for the future of for-profit higher education.
The webinar was presented by Clive Belfield, Professor of Economics at Queens College, City University of New York, and Research Associate at CAPSEE, Teachers College, Columbia University. A recording of the webinar is available below.*
