158: A New Day for Career Colleges - with Dr. Jason Altmire, CEO, CECU

In this amazing episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we have the honor of speaking with Dr. Jason Altmire, CEO, Career Education Colleges and Universities (CECU)!  Beginning his tenure as CEO and President of CECU on December 1st, 2020, Jason believes he can serve the career college sector well with his "Dead Center" voting record as evidence of his ability to work both sides of the aisle.  With access to robust data and a clear ROI to the taxpayer, career colleges have never been in a better position to communicate their relevance.  CECU now has a best practices guide for marketing and enrollment, and the sector is seeing an uptick in overall membership.  However, membership is aware that bias toward the sector may still exist. 

Dr. Jason Altmire is President and CEO of Career Education Colleges and Universities. Before joining CECU in 2020, he was a senior executive for two multibillion-dollar health care companies and served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.  During his time in Congress, he was particularly active on veterans issues, authoring nine different provisions relating to veterans that were signed into law. He served as chairman of the House Small Business Subcommittee on Investigation and Oversight, and was an active member of the House Subcommittee on Higher Education. There, he successfully led passage of several of his legislative initiatives, including incentives for partnerships between businesses and colleges to match curriculums to future workforce needs.
