In order to meet the increasingly complex workforce needs of our nation, private,
nonprofit higher education plays an integral role in developing the next generation of leaders, experts and workers necessary to fuel the workforce pipeline. The public higher education sector alone could not provide the number of highly educated individuals that states, and our nation need to sustain and grow our post-pandemic economy. 


The health of both sectors is vital to our nation’s economic stability and recovery. A healthy private, nonprofit higher education sector, coupled with a strong public higher education sector, results in better outcomes for individuals, businesses, governments
and economies.

The private, nonprofit higher education sector continues to excel in graduating students
at all levels. While enrolling 21% of students, it confers nearly 30% of undergraduate degrees and 45% of both master’s and doctoral degrees.
