Postsecondary Education


Postsecondary Education


After decades as the international leader in postsecondary education, the United States now trails other nations in providing students with the higher education skills, knowledge, and credentials that support national economic growth.

To help close this skills gap so the nation remains globally competitive, CED research looks at the methods, challenges, and impediments of employers seeking to support the higher degree attainment and skills certification of their employees.
