Today, for-profit professional and career schools are filling a critical need for non-traditional learners who need to start, continue, or complete postsecondary work as they manage their careers and career transitions. At Blackboard ProEd, we’ve been working to highlight some of the success stories our clients are seeing and show the value these schools provide to students across the nation.
The recently launched ‘Student Success’ program demonstrates real-life examples of how our clients are using Blackboard to help students achieve their educational goals. For instance, Ken Styron, Chief Information Officer for Columbia Southern University, tells us that ‘For the adult learner, our university offers an opportunity to start as well as finish their education, helping them find new jobs or advance in their current position.’
To see even more stories like these, Career College Central has documented hundreds of student and employer stories and brings perspective to the current discussion. And APSCU (The Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities) has launched a Student and Graduate Spotlight where you can learn about real people using career education to achieve remarkable things.
