Because we’re an allied member of APSCU, we want to do our part in promoting the great work of private sector colleges and universities.
Andover, MA (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Private sector colleges are rebuilding the American middle class by providing career skills and training to millions of Americans that are designed to meet the needs of today’s employers. In hopes of spreading the word about how these schools are helping to solve our nation’s economic crisis, Effective Student Marketing has created a new infographic that visually depicts these important academic and career statistics.
Workforce experts predict that 65% of all jobs and 85% of new jobs will require some level of postsecondary education. The academic programs offered at private sector colleges are designed to bridge the “skills gap” and deliver career-focused training to Americans who have limited access to education. Since the recession began in 2008, private sector schools have awarded nearly three million graduates with diplomas, certificates, or degrees, according to Steve Gunderson, the President of the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU).
Here are some of the statistics included on the How Private Sector Colleges Are Rebuilding the American Middle Class Infographic:
- Number of degrees and certificates awarded in the fastest growing occupations
- Increase of average annual income for private sector college graduates
- Demographics of Americans who commonly enroll in private sector colleges
- Ways that private sectors college are supporting our nation’s veterans
- Ways that private sector colleges are investing in their local communities
Effective Student Marketing encourages private schools to share the How Private Sector Colleges Are Rebuilding the American Middle Class Infographic with their students and staff so they may better understand how their institutions are helping put middle class Americans back to work. On this page, school administrators will find a link to easily share on their school’s social sites and a second link to download an 8.5 x 11 printable version to distribute around campus.
