UoPeople Reaches Over 1,000,000 Supporters on Facebook!


More than a million individuals support University of the People on Facebook, showcasing the exceptional support of UoPeople’s mission to open the gates to higher education for everyone. UoPeople is second in the number of supporters out of all universities on Facebook only to Harvard University.

UoPeople uses the internet culture of Facebook and social networking to bring higher education to the world, tuition-free. As the University is built on the concept of people sharing, learning, teaching, and helping each other online, Facebook is an integral part of the daily activity of UoPeople– from admissions, throughout student’s studies, and all the way through graduation. Applicants and students alike receive feedback on their questions via the University Page and student’s network amongst themselves on student-created UoPeople Facebook groups.

The global presence of UoPeople cannot be understated with support hailing from all corners of the world including Ghana, United States, Iraq, Haiti, Indonesia, Malaysia, Algeria, Peru, United Kingdom, Ethiopia, Egypt, France, Sri Lanka, Canada, Palestine, Jordan, Hungary, Tunisia, Philippines, Brazil, Morocco, Mauritius, Argentina, Cambodia and more.

UoPeople, as a non-profit, relies on the voices of our supporters to spread the word. Thank you for being a part of opening access to higher education worldwide!


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.
