Commitment to Action

Developing Haiti through Higher Education

Commitment by

University Of The People

In 2010, University of the People (UoPeople) committed to provide 250 local Haitian students with the opportunity to pursue higher education, improve their own standard of living, and ultimately gain the skill set vital to rebuilding their country. Over a three year period, this commitment will enable 250 low-income Haitian students who meet UoPeople admission requirements to pursue post-secondary education at UoPeople and successfully complete a course study of their choice. These students will study online with peers from around the world towards an Associate's Degree, tuition-free, in either Business Administration or Computer Science.
