Tuition Heroes Selected as One of Best 25 Ideas in OpenIDEO’s Higher Ed Challenge

OpenIDEO is a global community working together to design solutions for the world’s biggest challenges. They partner with leading organizations to drive collaboration, innovation and impact through launching challenges, programs and other tailored experiences.

In their recent Higher Ed Challenge, they looked at “How might we reimagine the cost of college in the U.S. and how it’s paid for?”. They began with 462 contributions, leading to 287 ideas submitted nationwide. The ideas received feedback from the community and 25 were chosen to move onto the refinement and final feedback stages. Tuition Heroes™ is proud to have been chosen in that short list of 25. We were also featured in an article from EdSurge.

Tuition Heroes exists to reward performance of higher education institutions for their tuition control. We want to be part of the solution to the problem of rising tuition rates in America. We calculate and track the tuition compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over a rolling four year period for all US higher education institutions and reward those that exhibit tuition growth control. Any institution with a CAGR of 2.5% or less or that offers a fixed rate tuition policy is a Tuition Hero™.
