College Unbound (CU), founded in 2009 and authorized as the newest college in Rhode Island in 2015, focuses on adult learners who faced significant barriers to attending and dropped out of college. CU uses interest-based, project-centered learning as its core model; projects are developed by the students and related to their real-world work experience or interests. Each project requires research, interviewing, networking, and testing theories and ideas in ways that are meaningful to the student. Key to CU’s curriculum is The Big 10 Leadership and Change competencies that consist of intellectual, practical, and social skills important to employers and necessary for success in life.
Currently pursuing regional accreditation, CU is growing from program to institution, increasing student enrollment and growing a quality team to support them!
