We are also proud to share that our research was cited by the Department of Education in the release of their long-awaited College Scorecard rankings.

Regarding social media, the Center’s Twitter handle has changed to @GeorgetownCEW to better brand ourselves in the busy Twitter landscape. We encourage you to continue following us and encourage your peers to do the same.

Lastly, if you haven’t already, I encourage you to read the College Scorecard released last month by the Department of Education. The rankings are designed to improve the performance of higher education institutions and better guide students and families making decisions on colleges to identify those that provide good value. We continue to support transparency surrounding the cost of higher education so that prospective students and their families have sound information on their investments.

Dr. Carnevale presented employment and earnings trajectory differences between millennials and older generations during a webinar with the National Council of La Raza on June 30. The webinar coincided with La Raza’s new profile on “Latino Millennials and Employment.” The presentation highlighted the employment climate facing Latino millennials during the recession and the recovery, and focused on policy agendas to improve recruitment and retention.
Andrew Hanson, senior analyst, met with the Federal Reserve on July 16 for the preparation of the Survey of Young Workers 2015. In today’s labor market, workers are increasingly acting as their own agents of employment, rather than as employees of a particular firm.  As the relationship between employers and workers shifts, employers may be less likely to provide salaries and traditional benefits to workers. Andrew provided feedback helping to identify issues specific to LMI individuals and underserved communities.
