Our Purpose


We offer people the power to create change.

Today’s learners care about making a difference. They learn to push the status-quo, seek to drive their careers forward, strengthen businesses and enrich communities. They learn to craft fast, effective solutions to complex problems. They learn new skills and perspectives to lead through an uncertain future. They learn to gain the power to create meaningful change.

We provide that power. Power that combines masterful, relevant content and seamless online digital learning experiences with our respected expertise in post-secondary education. Power that illuminates our most urgent challenges, our most vital goals, our most personal curiosities. Power that warms our hearts and cools our heads. Power that connects us to one another, that reveals histories and builds destinies. We create impact and positive change.
