The Global Campus makes a app education accessible to learners from across the world and at every stage of life. From prison halls to corporate boardrooms, high schools to environments for learners with intellectual disabilities, we’re pushing the boundaries of what a “classroom” can be.

What do we do?

We are always seeking opportunities to expand how we serve learners at any stage of life and in any place across the globe, and we also help launch new programs for app by providing services like planning and budgeting, project management, instructional design and technology, marketing and network development, and more. Check out some of our current projects.

Degree Completion and Professional Development

Expanding our reach to new learners includes creating hospitable educational opportunities for adults. We plan to offer degree completion programs and professional development to equip adults with sought-after skills, increasing their employment opportunities.
