Work with WGU Labs to Make Meaningful Progress on Education’s Biggest Challenges

WGU Labs has the products, services, and expertise to help leaders solve education’s wicked problems. Here is who we work with most often:

Higher Education Leaders

From competency-based learning and closing equity gaps to better alignment between education and workforce development, many challenges loom over colleges and universities. We solve these problems in ways that support systemic change and equitable, learner-centric environments. But we don’t act alone or without intention. We co-design educational content and products with the faculty members and students they will impact most. Our rigorous processes and methodologies help higher education leaders challenge their own thinking to find practical, innovative ways that engage and inspire students to learn.

EdTech Entrepreneurs

Breaking through in the education marketplace requires a deep understanding of stakeholders, networks, adoption cycles, procurement processes, and policies that guide and influence education. We invest in mission-aligned startup companies and provide consulting support to help grow their impact on learner outcomes while driving toward financial sustainability. Through services like market development, research, and awareness building, we can help EdTech entrepreneurs scale startups from launch to growth and beyond.
