Portales and Mediaplanet: Higher Education

We recently participated in Mediaplanet’s Higher Education campaign with Portales in which the industry united to raise awareness about the benefits of advancing one’s education. The campaign aims to educate millions about our rapidly changing education environment, and the opportunities available for the non-traditional student as well as the “new majority”, who are working adults, full time parents, or active members of our armed forces. As education has become more accessible, affordable, and immediately beneficial, we now have the ability to learn at our own convenience. The campaign was distributed through USA Today on March 27th, 2015 and is published online. Learn more.
