As explained at its website, the CAE is a national nonprofit organization based in New York City.  Initially established in 1952 to advance corporate support of education and to conduct policy research on higher education, today CAE is also focused on improving quality and access in higher education. You can hear Steedle interviewed about the Council’s Collegiate Learning Assessment initiative. The interview took place on “Talk of the Nation” on NPR in March, 2012.
