The Michelson 20MM Foundation portfolio company Pragya Systems was recently named a partner of National University’s newly launched Precision Institute. The Institute is a four-year, $20 million, R&D effort using technological advancements in higher education to graduate more students.

National University’s Precision Institute

Announced last week, the institute aims to identify solutions in open educational resources, predictive analytics, and advanced technologies. Furthermore, by adapting to students’ needs, the institute will integrate results into a cohesive platform. In addition, technology partners Gooru and Civitas Learning will also take part in the Precision Education initiative, alongside Pragya.

On hearing about Pragya’s participation in the initiative, founder of the Michelson 20MM Foundation, Dr. Gary K. Michelson, released this statement:

“With National University’s announcement, the old adage of standing upon the shoulders of giants rings true. From the early beginnings of our foundation’s accelerator program, Pragya proved to be a catalyst for change in higher education. Their technological endeavors are sure to make an impact in the lives of students, and in turn, our society as a whole.”
