Podcast: How to Measure Higher Education’s Value

Ed Smith Lewis, vice president at the United Negro College Fund, and Dr. Karen Stout, president & CEO of Achieving The Dream, join FutureU hosts Jeff Selingo and Michael B. Horn to discuss how we measure the value of higher education.

“The opportunities that colleges provide for many students go well beyond that sort of single point of economic value and career outcomes,” Lewis says.

Stout, whose organization focuses on community colleges, says the institutions are essential for intergenerational mobility and should be part of any conversation about higher education's value.
