About Consumer Insights

Partnering with Gallup and others, we have interviewed hundreds of thousands of Americans from all backgrounds and educational levels to create the nation’s largest dataset of consumer perspectives on the value of education to people’s careers and lives.

We are putting insights from the Strada-Gallup Education Consumer Survey into action as policymakers, educators, employers, and investors work to increase the value of postsecondary education.

• Working directly in some states and through the National Governors
Association and Education Commission on the States in others, we partner to
inform solutions for disconnected youth and adults without degrees.

• We support institutions of higher education in their efforts to understand alumni outcomes and improve learner experiences.

• We understand employer needs and amplify initiatives that actively engage employers in the design and delivery of education programs and work-based learning.
