April 22, 2020 – University of Washington (UW) Continuum College has joined InStride’s global network of quality academic institutions. The new partnership with InStride enables UW Continuum College to offer its award-winning online professional development programs directly to workers through their employers. With this partnership, InStride will connect its national and international corporate partners and their employees to the UW Continuum College’s online programs and courses.
“At the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, the University of Washington’s initiative as the first university in the nation to move its students to remote instruction was truly extraordinary,” said Vivek Sharma, CEO of InStride. “The university’s ability to help us develop strategic enterprise education programs that drive business growth makes it a perfect complement to our InStride academic network.”
