Capella has been committed to solve critical issues facing higher education. One such alarming fact is this: our country is not producing enough college graduates to help ensure we remain a globally competitive nation. While there are many factors, access for adult learners – who are most likely working full-time and busy with their families – is one. Without online options, our adult learners’ goals of advancing their career and pursuing their dream of higher education, would not be possible.
Yesterday, we asked our Capella social community the question: If online education didn’t exist, how would that affect you? Our adult learners are awe-inspiring. Take a look at the Facebook discussion: https://www.facebook.com/CapellaUniversity/posts/10152739139515641
Did you know that according to the 2010 U.S. Census, less than 2% of Americans have a doctoral degree? This video was created to celebrate the outstanding educational milestone our doctoral learners have achieved: https://www.facebook.com/CapellaUniversity/posts/174303856056062
