Joint statement from 2U and USC:
For many years, 2U and the University of Southern California (USC) have been pioneers in online education, collaborating to shape impactful paths in online graduate education. The relationship has been characterized by innovation, commitment, and a shared vision for quality education.
After much thoughtful consideration, 2U and USC have mutually agreed to conclude our relationship with respect to 2U providing services for USC’s online degree programs from the USC Rossier School of Education, USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, and the USC Iovine and Young Academy. Over the next 15 months, 2U and USC will work together to effectively transition the delivery and administration of servicing these programs to the university. We will ensure that students receive the same high standard of education and support they have come to expect. The USC Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy program will continue to receive support from 2U for its hybrid online clinical program.
Reflecting upon our decade-long journey, 2U and USC have consistently promoted the importance and potential of high-quality online education in USC Rossier, USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work and the USC Iovine and Young Academy. We are proud of the robust foundation that this relationship has helped to lay for these programs, which are well-poised for future success. Both 2U and USC remain excited and optimistic about what the next chapter holds for online education.
