Whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.
— Laozi

Fluid Education was formed to provide a solution for universities that desire options, beyond the traditional Online Program Management (OPM) model, for building and growing their online programs. We extend the reach and visibility of traditional universities that have existing online program offerings but lack the experience or on-the-ground resources to engage and support non-traditional learners across the nation and around the world.

We specialize in developing strategic partnerships between universities and employee/membership-based organizations to create long-term, sustainable channels for recruiting students, supporting professional development and providing student placement services. Additionally, our company provides marketing, student support, curriculum development and faculty support to help universities build, launch and grow successful online programs and engage prospective learners.

The leadership at Fluid Education have worked with some of the nation’s top-ranked and fastest growing universities.
