The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education promotes public policies that enhance
Americans’ opportunities to pursue and achieve high-quality education and training beyond
high school. As an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, the National Center prepares
action-oriented analyses of pressing policy issues facing the states and the nation regarding
opportunity and achievement in higher education—including two- and four-year, public and
private, for-profit and nonprofit institutions. The National Center communicates performance
results and key findings to the public, to civic, business, and higher education leaders, and
to state and federal leaders who are in positions to improve higher education policy.
Established in 1998, the National Center is not affiliated with any institution of higher
education, with any political party, or with any government agency.
