Career Education Corporation has announced that Dr. Patricia Kapper, senior vice president of education, has been elected for a three-year term to the Career College Association (CCA) Board of Directors. Kapper will be one of 18 voting members on the board.
CCA, one of the premier educational associations in Washington, D.C., is an organization of private, postsecondary schools, institutes, colleges and universities that provide career-specific educational programs and is made up of over 1,450 members and over 1,200 colleges. Each year, CCA and its members support almost two million students for employment in over 200 occupational fields.
“Since its inception, CCA has been extremely influential in the for-profit education industry. I am pleased and impressed that students have always remained the main focus of the association,” Kapper said. “It is an honor to be a part of the governing body that represents for-profit education and continues to support access to education and to deliver valuable resources and opportunities to students across the country.”
CCA schools are responsible for educating one-half of all technically trained workers who enter the U.S. workforce each year. Many of these students’ educations are made possible by support from the organization. CCA’s Foundation has provided nearly $30 million in scholarships to high school graduates attending CCA member schools over the past five years.
