UoPeople is pleased to announce a partnership with Hewlett Packard (HP), which provides UoPeople students the ability to apply for online research internships to work with the HP Catalyst Initiative – a global network of consortia that brings together leading educational institutions and NGOs. Select UoPeople students who are chosen to intern with HP will work with the consortia on the research and results of various projects within education, technology and health.
Gabi Zedlmayer, VP, Office of Global Social Innovation, HP explains that “HP has a longstanding commitment to global citizenship and education, and we strongly believe in the work UoPeople is doing to democratize higher education. By educating the underserved through online classrooms, UoPeople exemplifies the innovative use of technology, and we are thrilled to contribute to this effort by welcoming UoPeople in to the consortia.”
Designed to prepare underprivileged youth for the world economy, this is truly an important opportunity for our students. UoPeople seeks not only to educate students, but also to help them improve their job prospects. Through the internships, students will gain valuable work experience with a global organization like HP, helping to fulfil our ultimate mission.
We are proud to have this opportunity for our students, as well as the recognition of the aptitude and excellence of our students by Hewlett Packard. We look forward to hearing more about the assistance our students will provide HP in making great leaps forward in education, technology and health.
