  • Q&A with Gabi Zedlmayer: Educating the World, Tuition Free (08.15.17 )

    University of the People (UoPeople) bills itself as “the world’s first nonprofit, tuition-free, accredited, online, American university.” It was founded by entrepreneur Shai Reshef in 2009. Reshef told a TED conference in Vancouver in March, 2014, that he founded UoPeople “to create an alternative to those who have no other, an alternative that will be affordable and scalable, an alternative that will disrupt the current education system, open the gates to higher education for every qualified student regardless of what they earn, where they live, or what society says about them.” In this Q&A, Gabi Zedlmayer, who serves on UoPeople’s Computer Science Advisory Board, responds to questions about the organization.
