The Capella learning community [INFOGRAPHIC]

December 4, 2013

Our current infographic showcases the unique learning community at Capella University. Our professionally minded students span all 50 states and 61 countries. What makes our learning community unique is that 95% of our students attend part-time and have an average age of 40. This snapshot reflects the changing face of higher education – it is time to focus higher ed policy on this emerging reality.

By measuring learning on a direct assessment model over the measurement of time, we will have the potential to allow students, especially working adults, to complete their degrees faster and pay less. Capella’s FlexPath model aligns specific competencies with the needs of employers as well as critical societal needs, and provides busy working adults the flexibility they need to complete their program.
