About Digital Promise

Digital Promise is an independent nonprofit that builds powerful networks and takes on grand challenges by working at the intersection of researchers, entrepreneurs, and educators. Our vision is that all people, at every stage of their lives, have equitable access to learning experiences that help them acquire the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in an ever-changing world. Digital Promise was originally authorized by Congress in 2008 through the Higher Education Opportunity Act, signed into law by President George W. Bush, and formally launched by President Barack Obama in September 2011.
