美国人民大学(University of the People)是一所由沙伊·瑞希夫于2009年创办的非营利性教学机构,任何一个高中学历的人都可来学习并获商业管理或计算机科学等学科的学位——没有传统意义上的学费(参加考试需付费)。

创始人沙伊·瑞希夫希望高等教育从少数的人的特权变为一种基本权利,让所有人的都能承担和获取。凭借其免学费的晚上课程,人民大学是开放式的接受高等教育的平台,提供工商管理和计算机科学本科课程,迄今为止已经有来自150多个国家的2000名学生毕业并获得国家承认。

University of the People (UoPeople) is the world’s first non-profit, tuition-free, accredited, online academic institution dedicated to opening access to higher education globally for all qualified individuals, despite financial, geographic or societal constraints.

In February 2014 UoPeople received accreditation from the Distance and Education Training Council, a U.S. Department of Education authorized accrediting agency.

Founded in 2009 by educational entrepreneur Shai Reshef, UoPeople is affiliated with the United Nations GAID, the Clinton Global Initiative, and Yale Law School ISP. UoPeople has signed collaborative partnership agreements with New York University (NYU) to accept students; Microsoft for scholarships, internships and mentoring and with Hewlett-Packard (HP), through the Catalyst Initiative, to provide student internship opportunities. UoPeople offers undergraduate programs in Business Administration and Computer Science. To date, more than 2,000 students from over 150 countries have been admitted. Of students polled consecutively each term, 95% would recommend UoPeople to a peer.

With its tuition-free online programs, University of the People is opening access to higher education for all those constrained, as well as building a scalable and replicable model capable of changing the very nature of higher education. The non-profit UoPeople has managed to succeed in cutting down almost the entire cost of higher education, and does not charge for tuition or books/materials. All that is asked is for students to pay a one-time application processing fee ($50) and subsequent modest examination processing fees ($100) levied per course. There are no other fees whatsoever.

UoPeople strives to ensure, in keeping with its mission, that no qualified individual is excluded for financial reasons. To assist students in financial need, UoPeople has dedicated student scholarship funds. Corporate sponsors include Hewlett-Packard’s sponsorship of 100 HP Scholars as part of the UoPeople Women Scholarship Fund; Microsoft's sponsorship of 1,000 African students as part of the 4Afrika initiative; Western Union's sponsorship of students and Intel Foundation’s sponsorship of women students from Haiti.
