UoPeople Joins Partners for a New Beginning (PNB) ; 
Opens Admissions for Term 1 2011-2012 ; 
Reaches more than 300,000 Facebook Supporters 

Dear Friend,

Following President Obama’s Middle East Speech, UoPeople was invited to join Partners for a New Beginning (PNB) to assist in the democratization of higher education within Muslim communities. Chaired by Former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright, Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company Muhtar Kent and Aspen Institute President and CEO Walter Isaacson, PNB is a collection of public-private partnerships committed to broadening and deepening engagement between the United States and Muslim communities.  I look forward to participating in the inaugural PNB Summit at the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C. on May 31 and June 1, 2011.  

In other University news, I am happy to announce that University of the People has opened admissions for Term 1 2011-2012. With this term’s opening, we are seeing growth in demand for our tuition-free programs, insinuating UoPeople is providing benefits the world truly needs. 

Additionally, it is with great pride that UoPeople now has over 300,000 supporters on the official University Facebook Page. Our world outreach is spreading tremendously, and with strong continued growth comes the fulfillment of our mission to democratize education globally.

We could not have done it without your support, and appreciate your continued support.  

Warm regards,

Shai Reshef
Founder & President 
University of the People


Joining Partners for a New Beginning

UoPeople is both excited and honored to be a part of Partners for a New Beginning. As part of our membership, UoPeople will work with other PNB partners to accept students from two PNB countries. Countries in which PNB works with include Turkey, Pakistan, West Bank/Gaza, Egypt and Indonesia.  Eligible students will be admitted to our study programs and work toward a Bachelor’s or Associate’s Degree in either Business Administration or Computer Science. Graduates in these disciplines will gain highly sought after skills including increased professional development, enlarged networks and enhanced employment prospects.

Since we launched approximately a year and a half ago (September 2009), UoPeople has received a warm welcome in Muslim countries. Currently, 25 percent of our student body and more than 50 percent of our 300,000 Facebook supporters are comprised of individuals from Muslim countries. We feel that joining PNB strengthens our mission of democratizing higher education and look forward to the bridges we will build together. 



Opening of Admissions  

We are happy to open Admissions for Term 1 2011-2012. With every admission window, we see increased variety and diversity in the countries applicants are coming to us from –  including Indonesia, Pakistan, Greece, Palestine, Turkey, Armenia, United States and more.

We look forward to being able to say that after this admission period closes, UoPeople will have accepted more than 1000 students – a milestone we are excited to reach shortly.



300,000+ Facebook Supporters
We are proud of the number of supporters on Facebook and other social media. Using outreach efforts, we’ve been able to grow our exposure considerably. 

We are currently looking for more avenues to reach out to populations who are not necessarily on Facebook, or reading the international publications UoPeople receives press coverage in. We welcome your insight, as well as will keep you updated on any successful efforts gained to further our mission of democratizing higher education globally.
