University of the People (UoPeople) is the Education Revolution. It is the first non-profit, tuition-free, American accredited online university. Dedicated to opening access to higher education globally, UoPeople is designed to help qualified high school graduates overcome the financial, geographic, political, and personal constraints keeping them from collegiate studies. UoPeople is able to offer a tuition-free education thanks to the generosity of volunteer professors and administrators. The President, the Provost, the Vice Presidents, the Vice Provosts, the CFO, the professors and many others donate their time in the service of democratizing access to higher education. To date, we are proud to have built a network of more than 11,000 volunteers from all over the world. If you support our mission and are willing to volunteer, please continue reading.
