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.
