The Saylor Foundation

The Saylor Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to driving the cost of education down to zero by offering hundreds of online courses to anyone in the world who wishes to study at their own pace. Under its mission to make education freely available for all, the Saylor Foundation provides an option for education-seeking individuals facing financial or geographical barriers by employing university professors to compile high-quality, college-level courseware.


The Saylor Foundation first partnered with University of the People in 2012 by adapting its Business Law course for use by UoPeople, and later adapted a Strategic Management course for the UoPeople program. The partnership allows Saylor Foundation content to be utilized by new audiences and to be offered as part of an official degree delivered by academic instructors.
