Houlton isn’t just an educational institute: We are a social enterprise. We’re a different type of educator than for-profit universities. We believe learning — at its very essence — is a series of partnerships: Learners partner with educators; educators partner with experts and communities; everyone benefits from well-managed partnerships.
Houlton takes educational partnerships to the next level. We believe that non-profit organizations and other institutions have deep expertise in specific disciplines. Such expertise should be made available online through a trusted partner.
Our unique partnership model brings the expertise of the world’s best cause-driven organizations to a larger, online audience.In exchange for access to knowledge and expertise, these cause-driven organizations receive a percentage of revenue from each class taught at Houlton.
Passionate students learn more, faster. By partnering with renowned and expert organizations, we at Houlton are able to provide you with real, expert experience that contributes to useful skills. Additionally, this partnership helps fund the expansion of the partner’s expertise. This means that you benefit, your peers benefit, and most importantly, the partnering organization benefits.
There’s nothing worse than spending time learning a new subject or updating your existing skills, only to be jobless at the end. Houlton’s programs are intensive, focused and practical so that you can readily apply all learning to real-world situations. This is because every program at Houlton offers a capstone course dedicated to exercising your newly-learned skills with a focused organization.
