Global Problems Need Local Solutions

Catholic Online University was founded with the belief that some of the world’s most difficult challenges need simple solutions.

Our solutions can be implemented locally, are scalable, and we partner with on-the-ground organizations to deploy them.

This ensures the longterm sustainability and success of underserved communities, particularly in under educated men, women and children, around the world.

Too often in development, we see expensive and complicated capital-intensive projects being implemented, usually with little to no input from the local community. We believe this system is broken.

  • Our Four Colleges of Education:

  • WATER: 2 billion people drink unsafe drinking water every day.

  • AGRICULTURE: More than 1 billion people, mostly farmers, make less than $2 a day.

  • ENERGY: 1.2 billion people live off the grid, with no consistent access to energy sources.

  • ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT: 70% of the world cannot generate sustainable economic opportunities.

We empower communities with the tools and knowledge to solve their toughest problems so they can survive and thrive in today's world.

WATER, AGRICULTURE, ENERGY, and ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT are essential daily needs for the health and wellness of all people. Each of these Four Colleges represents a unique development challenge that is important and deserving of thought, attention and action. We use our simple designs too create sustainable solutions for each College.

At Catholic Online University we spend time thinking a little differently about solutions to the big problems of the world. We challenge ourselves to think of new ways to make projects inexpensive, faster, lighter, and using only locally sourced materials, no special tools, no electricity, and unskilled labor. 

Much of the developing world struggles with lack of access to water that is safe for human consumption, an essential first step in leading a healthy and productive life.

The most sustainable strategy for improving rural drinking water quality is to provide simple solutions for treating and safely storing water at the household level.

That is why our initial focus at Catholic Online University has been around development of simple solutions that empowers communities to solve this life-threatening issue.

How We’re Different

We are enablers. We educate for clean water, free fertilizer, free electricity, and economic opportunities because when you address that which is fundamental, you enable everything above it. So we don’t do education, we enable education. We don’t do agriculture, we enable agriculture. We don’t give people money, we enable them to make a living. The fundamental areas of water, food, energy, and jobs enable not only wellness and livelihood, but they also enable lasting solutions to the world’s biggest problems.

We have created personalized learning experiences for every type of learner. Our way of learning provides students an educational platform where they can learn, engage and be excited about charting their own path to discover the world. We bring together the best teachers, technology, content, and media for creating a seamless, world class learning experience for each and every student.

Catholic Online University provides a FREE world class high-quality education for anyone, anywhere.

We are explorers, developers, teachers, designers, strategists, scientists, and content specialists who passionately believe in inspiring the world to learn.
