Launching the “University of the People” in Arabic: University By Refugees, For Refugees

University of the People (UoPeople), the world’s first non-profit, tuition-free, American accredited online university will be announcing UoPeople in Arabic. Modeled after UoPeople in English, the University will be run primarily by refugees and for refugees – from Syria, Yemen, Libya, and Iraq, as well as other qualified students. UoPeople’s ambitious and comprehensive solution to the higher education crisis in the MENA region will provide refugees, internally displaced persons, and asylum-seekers with a quality university degree to help these vulnerable populations create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities.
