WITH INSIGHT: Shai Reshef, President of University of the People


Between beliefs and markets, imagination and data, you’ll find Insight. In our dynamic times, adaptation is constant because growth and the status quo do not coexist. It is WITH INSIGHT that your vision becomes clearer, learning becomes systematic, understanding is conceivable. 

WITH INSIGHT is a fireside chat series hosted by Insight Partners Managing Director, Deven Parekh, and thought leaders across the world. For this special event on February 23rd, Deven spoke with Shair Reshef, President of the University of the People.

Shai Reshef is the President of University of the People (UoPeople)—the world’s first tuition-free, non-profit, accredited online academic institution dedicated to opening access to higher education. Grounded in the belief that knowledge is a key ingredient of world peace, UoPeople provides access to collegiate-level studies to qualified individuals regardless of geographic, financial or societal constraints. An educational entrepreneur, Reshef received a PhD from the Open University in the UK and has over 25 years of experience in the international education market.

He has been internationally awarded for his work and has gained acclaim for his TED Talk that has had over 5 million views.
