Clear Outcomes

Accurate information on employment outcomes should be available for all postsecondary education programs.


Read time

When individuals choose to pursue education after high school, what can they expect their journey to look like? What jobs could it lead them to? What level of income might they expect?

Today, the data systems that could provide answers to these questions often lack key information, transparency, and/or accessibility.

We want to close those gaps – for prospective students, as well as for institution leaders, policymakers, and employers.

We envision a future in which everyone can access accurate information on employment outcomes that can help them make informed decisions about postsecondary education.
