Welcome to upublic

universal public (upublic) is a pioneering strategic consulting firm that advises governments and public-private sector clients on the feasibility, design and implementation of major education-based development initiatives around the world.

upublic was organized at Columbia University in 2005 by graduate students in education, architecture, technology, and business who perceived a critical need in the marketplace for a new, more entrepreneurial and holistic approach to assessing and addressing the complex challenges of teaching and learning in a globalized society.

Still true to the founder's collaborative and creative approach to problem-solving, upublic's interdisciplinary consulting teams of the best current experts from academe and business continue to produce visionary results for diverse groups of education stakeholders.
