UoPeople makes Higher Ed accessible in Haiti

University of the People continues to provide access to higher education for students around the world, working hard to promote lower education costs and helping to democratize higher education worldwide. To date, over 1700 students from 143 countries have been accepted, including more than 200 from Haiti.

UoPeople continues to attract grassroots support- with more people showing their support by joining its Facebook page- and continues to attract media attention- appearing in numerous news articles.

New Haitian students also commenced during the grant period, with more commencing the application process. Also during the project period, the UoPeople team worked hard on scheduling a return trip to Haiti for its President, Shai Reshef. President Reshef met students and potential students in Haiti, working to promote the right to education for Haitians and seek further partners and support for the University's work in Haiti.  

University of the People is continually expanding our worldwide partnerships in order to open the gates of higher education to as many students worldwide as possible. Corporate partners, organizations, and generous individuals make our mission to democratize education a reality.

Thank you for your generous donation.
