CEHD Associate Professor Shares Insight on the Impact of For-Profit Colleges on Students

Dominique Baker, associate professor in the College of Education and Human Development and the Joseph R. Biden Jr. School of Policy and Administration, shared insight on the troubling impact of for-profit colleges in a feature on Yahoo! News.

She highlighted the stark contrast in how these institutions use tuition revenue compared to nonprofit colleges. “At for-profit institutions, more of that money is just going back to trying to get more students to enroll,” Baker noted. She pointed out that nonprofit institutions, in contrast, invest tuition revenue into enhancing instruction and improving the learning environment.
