Woolf exists to promote academic excellence, broaden access to higher education, and guard values that are humane, democratic and international.
The Woolf Difference
Talent may be evenly distributed, but opportunity is not—we are committed to widening the horizon of opportunity by connecting students and quality academics across the world. Woolf is the first global collegiate higher education institution that allows education organizations to join as member colleges and offer accredited degrees.
Through Woolf’s world-class programs, students gain exposure to new ideas, new ways of understanding, and new ways of learning.
Woolf prioritizes an education that will serve its students both in the near-term and in the long-term. Woolf seeks to provide a personalized, bespoke education that instills values of curiosity, intellectual discipline, and clarity of expression.
Woolf prioritizes research-driven teaching on a Humboldtian model that uses the latest academic scholarship, and Woolf supports its students to engage in groundbreaking research.
Woolf encourages partnerships with governments, educational institutions, research centers, schools, and businesses of all kinds—provided these partnerships do not infringe on the values of Woolf.
Woolf promotes existing and new technologies that can improve educational outcomes for students, widen access to the Woolf global network, improve the career experience of academics, better secure credible governance, and lower the costs of institutional management.
