A new university is opening its doors this April, and guess what? It’s going to be 100% tuition-free! University of the People, the brainchild of an Israeli entrepreneur named Shai Reshef, will be a virtual school, the world’s first tuition-free, Internet-based academic institution. The idea is pretty remarkable in its simplicity: provide universal access to college—even in the poorest parts of the world. “Education, just like democracy, should be a right, not a privilege,” says Reshef.
