The University of the People, a tuition-free online university, received accreditation on Feb. 13 from a national agency and will graduate its first class of seven students later this year. NYU has collaborated with the University of the People since its launch in 2009 and NYU professors hold administrative positions within the online university. NYU President John Sexton said the University of the People’s dedication to promoting higher education for disadvantaged students is impressive. “We [are] proud of NYU’s collaboration with the University of the People, which provides us with additional avenues in identifying bright and ambitious candidates who might be right for NYU,” Sexton said. Sexton said the agreement between NYU Abu Dhabi and the University of the People has worked wonderfully.
