Join us for our newest No Lost Generation Tech Task Force webinar to learn how Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) is working to provide U.S. accredited bachelor degrees and employment pathways to refugees in Africa and the Middle East. SNHU and Authess are working together to use machine learning and AI to reduce degree costs while improving quality of education and student experience.
The ongoing refugee crisis with 65.6 million now displaced worldwide has dramatically accelerated a decades-long trend. With the average duration for protracted displacement now at 26 years, entire generations are being left without higher education or employment opportunities. Currently, less than 1% of refugees have access to tertiary education. Tertiary education holds the key to an alternative future of possibility for refugee communities around the world.
SNHU has revolutionized a way to deliver both a world-class degree and employment pathways to the world's most disadvantaged learners. Their Global Education Movement uses the College for All (CfA) program and offers fully-accredited U.S. bachelors degrees at no cost to refugees leading to employment pathways for refugee students in Africa and the Middle East. In collaboration with Authess, a company who applies machine learning and big data to higher levels of assessment, SNHU aims to reduce degree costs to SNHU and make tertiary education available to 50,000 refugees by 2022.
