    46. A study conducted by Harvard University finds that for-profit colleges/institutions/universities educate a larger fraction of minority, disadvantaged, and older students, who often end up with higher unemployment and “idleness” rates and lower earnings than do comparable students from other schools, and that they have far greater student debt burdens and default rates on their student loans. For-profit colleges are often attractive to non-traditional students.  With their myriad of online, night and weekend offerings, for-profits provide a lot of flexibility.   Many for-profit colleges are also interested in serving minority, low-income and first-generation college students.

    62. In 2011, Tri-Valley University (TVU), an unaccredited school, was raided by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement for operating as a front for illegal immigration. TVU's founder and owner, Susan Su, was arrested on indictments by a Federal Grand Jury on 33 counts.
    63. In 2011 University of Northern Virginia, an unaccredited school, was raided by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The university was closed on July 16, 2013 by order of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, due to its failure to achieve accreditation.

    67. Unlike traditional nonprofit colleges, for-profits are prohibited from getting more than 90 percent of their revenue from federal financial aid funding. They are also subject to new “gainful employment” rules that link access to federal cash with graduates’ success in finding jobs.
    68. Most for-profit universities and institutions are virtual schools that provide their education online. For-profit schools tend to focus on job-specific curriculums, such as business administration, medical billing and web design. Most of these often fail to provide programs properly accredited by agencies approved by the U.S. Department of Education, and their degrees are often not recognized. Academic standards of online schools are not as challenging and rigorous as traditional schools.
    69. Around 13% of students at community colleges and 48% at four-year public universities take out loans compared with about 96% of students at for-profit schools.
    70. Senator Thomas Harkin, who is responsible for oversight investigation of Federal dollars going to for-profit schools, raised the issues about the conflict of interest of the American Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), a national accrediting agency that accredits many for-profit colleges, accepted compensation directly from the schools receiving its accreditation awards.
    71. For-profit colleges, such as University of Phoenix, Everest Institute, and Potomac College, usually draw in less educated students into the classroom.

    College Commencement Speeches
    Barack Obama (Wesleyan '08) - "Now understand this - believing that change is possible is not the same as being naïve. Go into service with your eyes wide open, for change will not come easily. On the big issues that our nation faces, difficult choices await. We’ll have to face some hard truths, and some sacrifice will be required – not only from you individually, but from the nation as a whole."
    Bill Gates (Hardvard '07) - "We can make market forces work better for the poor if we can develop a more creative capitalism - if we can stretch the reach of market forces so that more people can make a profit, or at least make a living, serving people who are suffering from the worst inequities."
    Steve Jobs (Stanford '05) - "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma--which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become." (Video)
    Carleton Fiorina (MIT '00) - "Leadership is not about hierarchy or title or status; it is about having influence and mastering change. Leadership is not about bragging rights or battles or even the accumulation of wealth; it's about connecting and engaging at multiple levels. It's about challenging minds and capturing hearts."
    Richard N. Kaplan (Illinois '99) - "...we're not perfect, but trying your best to be honest, fair and accurate in your life, no matter what you do and being dedicated to taking responsibility, for admitting a wrong when the train runs off the tracks, which it inevitably will, this is central to your being a person of good character."
    Bill Clinton (MIT '98) - "But to make the very most of your life and the opportunities you have been given, you, too, must rise to your responsibility to give something back to America of what you have been given. As the years pass your generation will be judged and you will begin to judge yourselves not only on what you do for yourself and your family, but on the contributions you make to others -- to your country, your communities, your generation of children."
    Oprah Winfrey (Wellesley '97) - "Turn your wounds into wisdom. You will be wounded many times in your life. You'll make mistakes. Some people will call them failures but I have learned that failure is really God's way of saying, "Excuse me, you're moving in the wrong direction." It's just an experience, just an experience."
    Salman Rushdie (Bard College '96) - "Do not bow your heads. Do not know your place. Defy the gods. You will be astonished how many of them turn out to have feet of clay. Be guided, if possible, by your better natures."
    Education Secretary Arne Duncan (April 4, 2011 - For-Profit-Colleges Issues) - "We're trying to walk a fine line to make sure the good actors are supported and bad actors can't take advantage of people trying to better their lives."
    Clarence Thomas and Yale - "I’d learned the hard way that a law degree from Yale meant one thing for white graduates and another for blacks, no matter how much anyone denied it."
    Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Chrysler Group, (University of Toledo, 8 May 2011) - "In the months and years ahead, you will face the enormous challenge of keeping up with a constantly changing world. You will need to be open and flexible in order to embrace that change. The winds of change will blow you off course if you are not anchored by a core set of values. While circumstances may change around us, values are not negotiable. Defining your values is much more than an academic exercise. It takes time and effort to clarify what you believe in, what puts meaning into your life and, ultimately, gives you integrity."
    Denzel Washington (University of Pennsylvania, 2011)- "I’ve found that nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks, nothing."
    Arnold Schwarzenegger (University of Southern California, 2009)- "Whatever path that you take in your lives, you must always find time to give something back, something back to your community, give something back to your state or to your country."
