The problems in public higher education are too complex to solve alone

The REP4 Alliance is a powerful network of regional and national education, industry, and technology leaders, led by the seven higher education partners. The alliance works together to guide learners along their transformative journeys, provide expertise, test prototypes, implement ideas, and shape the future of REP4.

Grand Valley State University, REP4's organizer and convener, is the founding Midwest partner. The six other founding partners are: Amarillo College, a community college in Texas; Boise State University, a Research II university in Idaho; California State University San Marcos, an HSI (Hispanic-Serving Institution) and AANAPISI (Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution) in California; Connecticut State Colleges and Universities, a system of 17 public colleges and universities; Fort Valley State University, an HBCU (Historically Black College or University) in Georgia and Shippensburg University, part of the state system in Pennsylvania.


“Together, as REP4 partner institutions, we are engaging students in real-world projects and serving as a national model in the areas of student success and social mobility. We are building on the important work already in place and moving to new heights through innovation, collaboration and inclusion.”

- Ellen J. Neufeldt, President, California State University San Marcos
