On-Ramps and Off-Ramps: Alternative Credentials and Emerging Pathways Between Education and Work

The college degree remains the best ticket to a rewarding career and the middle class. Yet, traditional degree pathways alone cannot meet the lifetime education needs of adult learners who will require nimble, skill-based credentials to stay relevant in a dynamic economy. With permission of the authors, we are pleased to share the complete Executive Summary of this new report from Inside Higher Ed. (Full report costs $124—CPE has a copy available for review.) As the campus leader in certificates and other credentials serving non-matriculated adults learners, we welcome the opportunity to speak with you about the possibilities for collaboration to bring UC Davis strengths to new audiences.
