An Inspirational Meeting

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to participate in the Clinton Global Initative’s (CGI) annual meeting. I met with world and business leaders, NGO’s and a variety of fascinating and remarkable people.

As I presented UoPeople’s commitment to Haiti and discussed democratizing education on a panel with other industry leaders, I was nothing short of inspired.

The feeling was mutual. Our commitment was met with sheer excitement and enthusiasm. The timing, the location, the goal–everyone agreed that Haiti is in desperate need of our help and what we are doing is remarkable.

I am eager for our work in Haiti to begin and look forward to committing our effort to other areas in need of our help.

What other parts of the world most need our help?


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.
