From College to Life: Relevance and the Value of Higher Education

Examines consumer perspectives on relevance among a nationally representative sample of 110,481 adults, aged 18 to 65, who are currently employed and have taken at least some college courses. Results show that the more relevant people find their courses to be to their work and daily lives, the greater their belief that they received a high-quality education, that it was worth the cost, and that it contributed to their overall well-being.
