Q: Who provides oversight?
A: The talented staff at RPA facilitates and the amazing professors of University of the People.
Q: Are you for-profit or non-profit?
A: Yes, we’re for-profit, because we believe it is the faster and most sustainable way to make the biggest social impact.
For organizations focused on improving education, self-sufficiency matters, and here’s one big reason why: non-profit donations have a tendency to dry up during economic downturns, which is precisely when society needs to increase access to education to invest in a more prosperous future. That said, it’s important that we acknowledge that in the world of higher-ed, the term “for-profit” carries with it additional baggage: many “For-profit Colleges” of yesteryear took advantage of their students with little regard for their actual education and success. This was a dark chapter in the history of higher-ed, and very much contributed to the problem we’re working so hard to solve. RPA’s goal is student-centric and aimed at access, not profit, and solving such a massive societal problem will certainly generate plenty of value.
When you are curious about an organization’s intentions, whether for-profit or non-profit, the easiest way to see their intentions is by their actions. We invite you to judge us by our actions.
Q: Does RPA offer scholarships?
A: Although we do not offer traditional scholarships in the sense of what’s known, we do however provide opportunities and programs to allow our students and student athletes to scholarship themselves. We can do this with an entrepreneurial centered approach.
Q: Why does RPA require a commitment fee?
A: Consider the commitment fee an act of good faith. This allows us to account for students, organize housing, set the schedule as well and secure the right amount of personnel based on the numbers. The commitment fee is exactly that, a fee of commitment.
