Philanthropic Honor Roll


The support of generous donors has helped UoPeople become the established and accredited university it is today.


Donor contributions have helped UoPeople realize its mission to open the gates of higher education to all eligible applicants, regardless of financial, geographical, or political limitations.


Currently, over 27,000 students are enrolled at University of the People. For many of these students, a university degree would not have been attainable without UoPeople.


We look forward to the ongoing support and generosity of donors, as we continue to expand our student body, and further our mission to provide a high-quality, yet affordable education to all.
