Colleges and universities are under increasing pressure to demonstrate the value they provide in students’ post-collegiate lives. Such demands for greater accountability and transparency are due to concerns from policymakers and the public about college costs, student debt, and completion rates. The goal of the Post-Collegiate Outcomes (PCO) Initiative is to provide a framework for a richer and more comprehensive discussion of post-collegiate student outcomes, as well as the development of consistent and meaningful measurement tools for reporting those outcomes.
