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.


“We are inspired by young learners with keen perspectives on what their future can be. These learners gave us ideas that will play a key role as we lead the national conversation on a new vision for education. Their insights will help us create a model foran education system designed for learners by learners.”

- Philomena V. Mantella, President, Grand Valley State University
