Post-Collegiate Outcomes (PCO)

The Post-Collegiate Outcomes (PCO) collaborative project recently released a framework and toolkit to facilitate the discussion, compilation, and reporting of post collegiate outcomes.

The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), in partnership with the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) completed their work and released a comprehensive final report describing the strategic framework and toolkit on March 31. The report, the framework, and the accompanying tools are important steps toward the creation of common metrics and indicators for use by institutions to report a more comprehensive set of post collegiate outcomes. Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the project partners assembled subject-matter experts and institutional leaders to create a framework and tools that enable colleges and universities, policymakers, and the public to better understand and talk about post collegiate outcomes in areas such as economic well-being, ongoing personal development, and social and civic engagement.
