AAC&U Vice President for Policy and Public Engagement Debra Humphreys was one of three guests on WAMU's The Kojo Nnamdi Show on May 7, 2014. The show, titled, “Measuring the Value of A College Degree,” was a panel discussion that addressed the value and costs of a college degree, future employment prospects for college graduates, and President Obama’s proposed ratings system. Humphreys argued that the value of a college degree is about more than just earnings and noted that, “Nearly all employers recently surveyed by AAC&U say that ‘a demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems is more important than [a candidate’s] undergraduate major.’” Humphreys also noted some of the problems with President Obama’s proposed rating system and responded to questions about AAC&U’s 2014 report, How Liberal Arts and Sciences Majors Fare in Employment. The report argues that "whatever undergraduate major they may choose, students who pursue their major within the context of a broad liberal education substantially increase their likelihood of achieving long-term professional success." See AAC&U’s most recent statement on the proposed federal ratings system.
