What We Do

We have interviewed hundreds of thousands of Americans from all backgrounds and educational levels to create the nation’s largest dataset of consumer perspectives on the value of education to people’s careers and lives. Our research provides clear, actionable insights on how we can add meaning, value, and purpose to every postsecondary education experience.

Our Research

We are putting insights into action as policymakers, educators, employers, community leaders, and investors work to increase the value of postsecondary education. Through this work we seek to:
  • Deliver clear research insights from education consumers to mobilize education and workforce stakeholders in the pursuit of solutions that increase the value of higher education.
  • Establish data-based partnerships with states, institutions, and key influencers to catalyze consumer-centered solutions that improve the value of postsecondary education.
  • Create more purposeful links between education and careers by ensuring that consumer assessments are a key component of measures of quality and value in postsecondary learning.
