The recent closure of multiple large, proprietary (or private, for-profit) institutions of higher education (IHEs) has brought into focus the extent to which a postsecondary student's education may be disrupted by a school closure.

The best designed short-term programs are embedded in a longer-term career pathway program, enabling…
