UW System receives $1.2 million Lumina grant for UW Flexible Option

The UW System will receive a $1.2-million grant from Lumina Foundation to assist with evaluation of the UW Flexible Option, the UW System’s new competency-based credentialing model, and also provide support for developing a blueprint for other universities to build similar programs. The grant project, Competency-based Higher Education: A Blueprint for Success, will comprehensively chronicle and qualitatively analyze the development of the UW Flexible Option. The UW System will use Lumina funding to produce an integrated set of blueprints that may be used by other universities working to develop similar competency-based delivery programs. For details.
