The Kepler Model: A Revolution in Higher Education in Africa
Monday Oct. 19, 2015
12:15 to 1:45 p.m.
LBJ School of Public Affairs

Join Dr. Josh Busby and the RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service for lunch and conversation with Christopher Hedrick, CEO of Kepler.

In under three decades, Africa will have a larger working age population than China. Despite exploding demand, Africa has the smallest percentage of college graduates in the world. Using a blend of world class digital resources with intense local seminars and a focus on education to employment pathways, Kepler is piloting a model for low-cost, high-quality education that can be replicated across Africa.

Kepler CEO Chris Hedrick is an expert in global health, international development, technology, and learning. Before joining Kepler in 2014, Hedrick led the U.S. Peace Corps efforts in malaria prevention across Africa and was the Country Director for the Peace Corps in Senegal.
