Congressman Discusses Career Education at Stevens-Henager College

Representative Rob Bishop (R) encouraged faculty and supporters of Stevens-Henager College to continue to fight against the Department of Education's proposed "gainful employment" rule.

While visiting the campus, the Congressman, who taught high school for 20 years and sits on the Committee of Education and Labor, pointed to free enterprise as a sufficient regulator of so called bad actors in higher education.

As one of the oldest colleges in Utah, Stevens-Henager has helped generations of students achieve their dreams of a better career through degree programs in Healthcare, Computer Programs, Business and Graphic Arts. Congressman Bishop visited the Logan campus yesterday to meet with faculty, students, campus advisory board members and local business partners.

He encouraged all the event attendees to voice their concern through letter writing campaigns against imposing the "gainful employment rule," which would regulate for-profit colleges based on student graduation and loan default rates. The Congressman said the closing of unsatisfactory colleges would happen organically because of loss of business and should not be the result of federal regulation.

"Congressman Bishop has long been a friend to education and to our college," said Vicky Dewsnup, Stevens-Henager Regional Director. "The misconduct of a few individuals has fueled scrutiny of career colleges. We are glad to know Congressman Bishop recognizes that the whole barrel of apples is not rotten and is an advocate for the vital role Stevens-Henager serves in the community."

This was the Congressman's first trip to the Logan campus, having visited the Ogden campus several times. During his visit, the Congressman toured the campus, attended a few campus events and met with key campus personnel. At the end of his visit, Congressman Bishop was presented an official Stevens-Henager stadium blanket on behalf of the college.
