Thank You for Being a Friend.

Whether it’s a friend lending an ear or a professor offering extra help, support comes in a variety of ways.

At UoPeople, I find the shape of our support comes from our vast network around the globe. From our volunteers and advisors to our 60,000 Facebook fans, we would not be where we are today without our advocates. You are the ones who help support our mission and our dreams. I am proud that we can be here to support yours.

I am always moved to hear from those in our community. As champions of UoPeople, your thoughts are welcome as we continue to grow and improve.

With that, I open the discussion up to you. What ideas do you have to help UoPeople flourish?

About President Shai Reshef

Starting in 1989, Shai Reshef served as chairman of the Kidum Group, a test preparation company, which he sold in 2005 to Kaplan, one of the world’s largest education companies. While chairman of Kidum, he built an online university affiliated with the University of Liverpool, enrolling students from more than 100 countries; that business was sold to Laureate, another large for-profit education company, in 2004. A vessel for universal higher education, UoPeople has the enormous potential to function as a global stimulus package, reaching even the most remote and poorest places on earth. Our ultimate mission is to democratize higher education and, if the past two years are any indication, this is not merely a pipe dream.

  1. Goodday Sir.
    I really appreciate your vision for UoPeople.. I Don’t have a suggestion yet but hope to come up with one soon.
    However, I published a review of UoPeople on my Blog. Thought you’ll want to know if it speaks well of UoPeople. I hope to get to know and share more about University of The People. As a B.Eng holder in Petroleum Engineering, guess I can’t be a student or lecturer.
    Any way Here is the review link

    My apologies for the incorrect abbreviation – I will be careful to use UoPeople henceforth.
    Best Regards

    I think adding a Flattr button to the site would really add to the level of financial support UofP could be getting.
    Flattr.com makes it much easier for people of limited means to support the sites and projects they love.
    It could turn all those fans into supporters – and with that many supporters, even the smallest contributions could add up quickly!

      Dear Maluvia,
      Thank you very much for your comment, we will look in to it.
      We would like to draw your attention and point out that our official name is University of the People, abbreviated as UoPeople. We would appreciate you taking note of this from now on so as not to confuse our institution with other organizations.
      We wish you the best of luck,
      UoPeople Communication team
