Improving higher education outcomes in the United States
College Measures worked with state governments to help identify higher education credentials with high return on investment. Our work focused on jobs that present the best opportunities for students to launch exciting careers and on skills that students need to get those jobs, with the goal of helping them find programs that allow them to lead the lives they want.
College Measures was borne of a commitment to improving higher education in the United States, and operated under the belief that data is underexposed and underused by students, parents, policymakers, and even by institutions themselves. The goal was to make data useful, usable—and used—in order to help increase student success.
