Univision and IES partner to increase online presence of Hispanic-serving colleges
Integrated Education Solutions (IES) and Univision Communications Inc. today announced a strategic alliance to help Hispanic serving institutions develop their online capabilities. IES and UCI will work with colleges and universities experienced in serving Hispanic students to build new online educational offerings, or expand current efforts.
IES will provide a turnkey solution to institutions seeking to offer online courses and degree programs, including program planning, instructional design, recruitment and student services, virtual campus management and regulatory compliance consulting.
“IES has tremendous expertise in this area, built on DeVry Education Group’s more than 20 years of experience managing programs and serving students from the certificate to the doctoral level,” said Stephanie Woodson, executive director of IES. “We are excited to work with Univision and Hispanic serving colleges and universities to create and deliver quality online programs.”
DeVry Education Group’s online services operations serve over 450,000 course takers per year across a wide range of academic programs at DeVry Group institutions, including nursing, business, medicine, technology and allied health.
As part of the strategic alliance, Univision will provide access to research from its consumer insights team, as well as a material media package supporting this strategic alliance that includes television, radio, digital, and live events.
More than 56 million Hispanics live in the U.S., representing nearly half the nation’s population growth from 2000-2012, and nearly 89 percent of the growth in college enrollment during that timeframe.
