About Our Name

We are always capital-t ‘The NROC Project’ or simply ‘NROC’.

Standard NROC Descriptions

WHO & WHAT

The NROC Project (NROC) is a non-profit organization that partners with educators to create courses and tools designed to improve how college and career readiness is approached and supported.

NROC provides open and low-cost courses and tools designed to recognize every student’s unique learning needs and preferences. These resources can be adapted and scaled to meet programmatic goals in a variety of instructional settings.

WHY

Today’s students face unprecedented barriers to academic and life success –– a problem that disproportionately impacts first-generation college goers, students of color, and low-income learners. Committed to growing access to high-quality educational opportunities, NROC supports closing this achievement gap.

NROC believes personal agency and well-being are directly linked to one’s freedom to learn and apply their knowledge. College and career readiness has a profound impact on individual, family, community, and societal wellness.

HOW

NROC collaborates with a powerful network of member institutions to deliver courses and tools that address the college and career readiness challenges students face today.

NROC works with distinguished academic partners and subject matter experts to develop innovative, rigorous educational content.

What does NROC stand for?

NETWORK | Educational institutions benefit from working together.

RESOURCES | Educators are empowered by high-quality, multi-media content and applications.

OPEN | Membership keeps costs low for institutions, and free for individuals.

COLLEGE & CAREER | We’re committed to helping students pursue academic and life success.

Standard NROC Funding Statement

The NROC Project is sustained by NROC member institutions, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
