Our Story

In response to the rapid growth of higher education technologies, a number of leading research institutions formed Unizin. Our Member universities collaborate and share resources to adapt to the ever-changing digital teaching and learning landscape and incorporate new education technologies into their existing pedagogies. Unizin is a means for higher education to shape its own future in ways that best serve learners.

Unizin is membership-based and governed by its Founding Member institutions as a nonprofit 501(c)(3). It is currently composed of 25 institutions and 900,000 learners, making it one of the largest educational systems in the country. Unizin, Ltd. is headquartered in Austin, Texas.
