The Complex Universe of Alternative Postsecondary Credentials and Pathways


We are most grateful to Martin Kurzweil and Jessie Brown at Ithaka S+R for providing a clear and concise overview of the complexity of postsecondary credentials beyond bachelor’s and associate’s degrees as well as the emerging alternative pathways through which students can earn college credentials. Their work will help inform the recommendations issued by the Commission on the Future of Undergraduate Education.

Special thanks to those who reviewed and provided edits to drafts of this paper, including Richard Light, Stanley Litow, Robert Pozen, and Mitchell Stevens. We would like to thank Carnegie Corporation of New York for its financial support of the Commission and its work, which includes the publication of four occasional papers on the most pressing concerns facing American undergraduate education today.

Finally, we extend our sincere thanks to Francesca Purcell and Eliza Berg at the American Academy for their continued guidance and support on this project.
