U Delaware Taps Private Partner To Help Expand Online Graduate Offerings

The University of Delaware is teaming with a private partner to expand its online graduate programs.

The new partnership is designed to grow the university's online Master's of Education in Teacher Leadership program and bring three more programs, the Master of Public Administration, Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Master of Science in Cybersecurity, fully online.

The university's partner in the project, Wiley, "will provide market research and marketing, enrollment and retention, instructional design, online course delivery and assessment services," according to a news release. "These highly targeted services will allow the University of Delaware to attract and support new student populations as well as further the efforts, goals and initiatives of the institution as outlined in the University of Delaware's new strategic plan, Delaware Will Shine, which stresses student success, affordability and access."

"We will benefit from Wiley's resources and market research expertise. They will help us determine which program opportunities best align with our strengths so we can continually plan for the future," said Jim Richards, vice provost at the University of Delaware, in a prepared statement. "Their main focus is supporting students throughout their lifecycle and we believe they will work closely with our faculty to deliver the best online learning experiences."
