Editor | Author | Columnist | SpeakerWhen my parents bought their first
house in the early 1960s, they focused
on buying a place to live in and raise
their children. By the time I purchased
my first house early last decade, buying
a house was as much about the
"investment" as it was about buying
something in order to put a roof over
your head. Flipping homes turned into
something people did for a living.
"Return on investment" became as important a metric as the
number of bedrooms and bathrooms in the house.
Return on investment has now become an important met-
ric for another big purchase in life: the college degree. For
generations we've been told that going to college was worth it
both from an economic standpoint (higher earnings) and for
improved quality of life (better health and civic engagement).
surged by one-third last
decade. Going to any
college, at any cost was
the ticket to a better life.
Now as incomes
lag and college prices
continue to rise--aver-
age tuition eats up 40
percent of median
income these days--the
going to college has evolved into figuring out the return on
investment of going to a specific school to major in a particular
Better data tools now allow prospective students and par-
ents to measure colleges based on the salaries of their gradu-
ates. This is just one measurement of value, and shouldn't
solely be used to judge a school. But as expected, college

leaders are vocal in their opposition to such measurements. Some
want to return to the old days where they told families that the
degree was worth it based solely on trust.
For me, it's a win for prospective students and their families to
have salary information available to them during the college
search, along with the answers to other key questions: How long
will it take me to graduate? How much student loan debt will I need
to take on? When viewed together, such information helps con-
sumers measure the return on investment. Here's why that's a
good thing for students and colleges:
Forces colleges to better measure "the experience."
College leaders say the campus experience is about so much
more than the degree and what you earn after graduation. But most
colleges can't quantify that "value added," and even if they can
through measures such as the National Survey of Student
Engagement or the Collegiate Learning Assessment, schools don't
want to release the results. If schools dislike earnings information
being made available, it might force colleges to come up with other
ways to measure value.
Helps differentiate colleges.If college A has a much higher graduation rate than College B
and graduates of College A have higher earnings than that of
College B, the ROI helps students and parents better separate
schools that might look similar on many other factors, such as
majors, size, and location.
Puts potential loan debt in context.The idea of loan payments are unfamiliar to potential college
students if they never had debt in their lives. What's more, student
loans are often expressed in total debt rather than monthly pay-
ments, the way most of us think about paying back debt. If schools
are requiring you take on $30,000 in debt to go there, then they
should be able to tell you what graduates from that college in your
field are earning in order to pay off that debt.
