ASU, The Rise Fund Partner on Learning Service for Employers

Arizona State University is joining forces with The Rise Fund to launch InStride, a new partnership program with employers to provide opportunities for employees to obtain a university education.

Arizona State University and The Rise Fund are partnering to allow employers to sponsor employees to earn university degrees. InStride, a new learning services enterprise designed to partner with employers, will help employees obtain a university education. ASU is the first university to partner with The Rise Fund in this effort.

“Many forward-thinking employers are already leading the way in the movement to provide learning opportunities for employees that result in life-altering benefits,” said ASU president Michael Crow. We have created InStride to accelerate that movement and partner with more employers who seek to provide flexible learning options for employees no matter what stage of their career they are in.”

ASU offers more than 175 bachelor’s degrees, master’s degrees and certificate programs through ASU Online. InStride will work with employers to build education partnerships with ASU and other universities that meet the needs of their employees.
