Postsecondary Value Commission Task Force

Promising Practices

Information Submission Page

The Postsecondary Value Commission, which AASCU President Mildred García co-chaired, released a report in 2021 that proposed a new approach for measuring the value of education after high school and recommended actions college and university leaders, state and federal policymakers, and students and families can take to improve those returns and make them more equitable.

AASCU institutions educate 3.3 million undergraduates, and a large share of them are the “new majority”—the first-generation, low-income, and/or students of color pursuing postsecondary education. Therefore, we are uniquely positioned to further the work of the Postsecondary Value Commission.

Use this form to share the ways your institution’s work is supporting positive outcomes in the following areas:

  • Equalizing access
  • Making college more affordable
  • Eliminating completion gaps and strengthening post-college outcomes
  • Improving data to expose and address inequitable postsecondary value
  • Promoting social justice by providing equitable postsecondary value

This page will guide you through the information necessary to create a Promising Practices story. Editors will compose this story from the information you supply to maintain consistency among our Promising Practices. You will be given an opportunity to review before it is published on this website.
