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 six founding 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 five other founding partners are: Amarillo College, a community college in Texas; Boise State University, a Research II university in Idaho; Fort Valley State University, an HBCU (Historically Black College or University) in Georgia; San José State University in California; and Shippensburg University, part of the state system in Pennsylvania.


“Higher education is at risk of irrelevance if we cannot adapt and innovate for a shifting landscape in technology and workforce development. REP4 links transformative institutions committed to reimagining learning. Amarillo College is honored to join this work with the goal of creating 21st century skills students can take with them on new and better transfer pathways.”
