Meeting the Moment 

WGU has proven that disrupting the standard higher ed paradigm is not only possible, but successful. But we know that isn’t enough. There continue to be systemic societal problems that need to be solved. Now is the time to rise to the occasion and meet these pressing needs in education and workforce development, and WGU is ready to meet the moment. This is our charge. 

For FY24, we engaged in a process with every college and affiliate leader, student success, program development, and more to determine our top fundraising priorities. 

College and Career Readiness

There are 36 million Americans who have some college experience, but no degree. This statistic represents a crisis in higher education. At a time when employers struggle to find qualified candidates, we cannot ignore the millions of people who are passionate about getting ahead but whose life circumstances do not fit the traditional model of higher education. 

At WGU, we are committed to changing the higher education landscape to better serve the 21st-century learner and to help more people get access to higher education.

Enabling Innovation for all Learners

As a pioneer in the development of innovative technology models to support student success, WGU is well-positioned to connect institutions with  innovation in order to advance student academic, career, and life outcomes. Through internal and external collaborations, WGU is accelerating advances in new technological, systems, process, and learning ideas that better meet the needs of all students, especially those who have been overlooked in the past.

Created as a way to bring ideation and incubation under one roof, WGU Labs is both an idea engine and a testing ground, focused on solving tough educational problems by rapidly designing, testing, and refining effective learning solutions.
