Career College Association Announces Name Change

by Daniel L. Bennett

The CCA will soon refer to itself as the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU). From its press release:
CCA will complete the process of changing its name to better represent students, institutions and the sector overall.
Harris Miller (CCA President) stated:
"In voting the change, the Board recognizes the evolution of career oriented education from its primarily trade school roots to a multi-dimensional, multi-faceted, multi-modal philosophy of higher education delivery that directly responds to the demands of 21st century students, employers, and the larger economy. The phrase 'private sector' is synonymous with innovation in virtually every walk of life, and the public’s faith in private sector solutions to solve most of society’s biggest challenges will carry over into the realm of higher education too.”
