Mapping Attainment Pathways for Non-Traditional Students
An Interview with Doug Shapiro, Clearinghouse Executive Research Director
The EvoLLLution, an online newspaper focused on higher education, recently interviewed Doug Shapiro, Executive Research Director of the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, on the pathways taken by non-traditional students. In the interview, Doug discusses the results of recent research on certificate and associate degree completion and how they factor into higher degree attainment.
“Today’s students are also thinking of degrees and credentials as stepping stones along a path to a broader educational goal … They’re treating these educational goals as part of a lifelong learning path.”
