The Center for Analysis of Postsecondary Education and Employment (CAPSEE) carries out research in partnership with five states—Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia—to better understand the employment and earnings benefits associated with a broad range of postsecondary education pathways. CAPSEE is housed at the Community College Research Center at Teachers College, and it is operated in collaboration with scholars at the University of Michigan, Harvard, Stanford, CUNY, the University of North Carolina, and New Horizons Economic Research. For more information, visit capseecenter.org.

This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences.
