LENEXA, Kan. – (May 30, 2012) – Bringing together two important voices in career education, Career College Central and the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) have announced a new partnership that will return a familiar publication to print. The May/June 2012 edition of Career College Central will introduce a recurring section featuring APSCU’s The Link. The partnership will mark The Link’s return to publication after a year’s hiatus.
For years, The Link has offered career college executives and staff a vital print-based resource that provided an in-depth look at the most critical issues and trends in the sector. The new eight-page section will appear in each bi-monthly edition of Career College Central. Supplied entirely by APSCU, the articles and other content will feature news from the Hill, important announcements, the opinions of APSCU leaders, and accomplishments of the APSCU organization, its supporters, member schools, and allied members.
Since Career College Central’s first issue in 2006, the news magazine and its related website, www.CareerCollegeCentral.com, have served as a source of information, action, perspective, communication and education specific to those involved in career-oriented education. The partnership allows Career College Central to strengthen its coverage of Capitol Hill while providing APSCU with a renowned forum in which to report the efforts of the Association on the most critical issues and trends in the sector.
“When our editorial staff received word that The Link was no longer going to be published, we were disappointed to lose what we have always valued an important voice in our sector,” said Career College Central Publisher Michael Platt. “We believe continuing The Link’s legacy is preserving one of the most important connections for what is happening on the Hill and in regard to the most critical issues influencing the sector.”
The partnership comes during a time when the career education sector is facing unprecedented challenges from Capitol Hill and in the media – and at a juncture when it’s never been more important to speak as one voice.
“In our first insert in Career College Central, we suggest the theme of ‘Preparing for the Job Ahead,’” said APSCU President Steve Gunderson. “Our sector only stands to gain from a diverse set of voices focused on this common theme. Our individual work is focused on the success of every student. Our collective work is focused on the growing responsibility, and growing opportunity, for our sector.”
