Learn more about our mission.
The Postsecondary Commission will work with new and existing colleges that produce economic mobility for their students, that are innovative in their designs, and that agree to act with transparency and be held accountable for results.
The Postsecondary Commission will operate on five core principles. We will:
Specialize in Nonprofit College Startups
Insist on Economic Mobility Outcomes
Protect Students and Taxpayers
Value Innovation in College Design
Operate Free from Conflicts of Interests
Over the next several years, the Postsecondary Commission will seek federal recognition from the US Department of Education.
In 2023, as part of that process, we will develop, seek public input on, and release our standards, protocols, and procedures for accreditation, and we will begin to work with partner colleges to implement and refine our proposed approach to accreditation.
We will seat our Board of Commissioners and grow our staff.
We will also continue to lead conversations on issues related to our mission. We will conduct research, host gatherings, and share stories that illustrate the need for a renewed focus in US higher education and in the field of accreditation on economic outcomes, innovation, and accountability.
