UoPeople Students: How would you like to intern with Hewlett Packard, the world’s largest technology company?

UoPeople is pleased to announce a partnership with Hewlett Packard (HP), which provides UoPeople students the ability to apply for online research internships to work with the HP Catalyst Initiative – a global network of consortia that brings together leading educational institutions and NGOs. Select UoPeople students who are chosen to intern with HP will work with the consortia on the research and results of various projects within education, technology and health.

Gabi Zedlmayer, VP, Office of Global Social Innovation, HP explains that “HP has a longstanding commitment to global citizenship and education, and we strongly believe in the work UoPeople is doing to democratize higher education. By educating the underserved through online classrooms, UoPeople exemplifies the innovative use of technology, and we are thrilled to contribute to this effort by welcoming UoPeople in to the consortia.”

Designed to prepare underprivileged youth for the world economy, this is truly an important opportunity for our students. UoPeople seeks not only to educate students, but also to help them improve their job prospects. Through the internships, students will gain valuable work experience with a global organization like HP, helping to fulfil our ultimate mission.

We are proud to have this opportunity for our students, as well as the recognition of the aptitude and excellence of our students by Hewlett Packard. We look forward to hearing more about the assistance our students will provide HP in making great leaps forward in education, technology and health.

Please join us in celebrating our new HP partnership and this exciting internship opportunity for students by letting us know your thoughts and comments.


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.

    This is a wonderful opportunity for Uopeople students. I have always been thinking of how students in such a University will have the chance of putting the knowledge acquired into practice. I think this partnership makes Uopeople complete in training students who can be competitive in the job market, a quality which is usually lacking with most online graduates.As a student of this great institution , it will be a great opportunity for me to do my internship with Hewlett Packard. I am seriously looking forward to that.

    A million smiley faces to Hewlett Packard for joining with the University of the People!


  17. Emmanuel Omiah says:

    This is only the beginning for UO People!

    Other organizations and institutions, including governments of nations, should step in, like HP has done, and open their doors to University of the People! I would like to use this opportunity to also encourage United Nations, Commonwealth, UNESCO, and other international organizations to open their doors to students of UO People in the third world countries, especially in Africa. This will encourage others to join UO People, and receive the best education of their dream, which they otherwise would not be able to acquire.

    University of the People is for real!
    Thank you.

  18. Danijel Artenjak says:

    P.S. Dear Mr. Reshef, you spoiled us with an exhilarating rush of good news lately. What’s next? It can’t be better than that, can it? 🙂
