Company Updates


    We’re excited to welcome Howard University, a historically Black college and university with a distinguished legacy to the Coursera platform! Read the announcement from Coursera's Chief Content Officer, Betty Vandenbosch, to learn about the courses Howard will be launching on our platform later this year.


    We believe that learning is the source of human progress, and that Coursera and our community can play a vital role in rebuilding a more inclusive and sustainable economy. That’s why we’re proud to announce that Coursera has received B Corp Certification from B Lab, an independent non-profit organization, for meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve also modified our corporate charter to become a Public Benefit Corporation. This means we now have a duty not only to our shareholders, but to also make a positive impact on society more broadly as we continue our efforts to reduce barriers to world-class education.


    We’re excited to share Coursera’s new brand identity, a reflection of our ongoing commitment to make transformative learning accessible, inclusive, and impactful for all. Our new identity expresses the power and potential of every learner—and every learning opportunity—on Coursera.


    We're proud to be on Tech in Motion's list of Toronto's Best Places to Work. This Timmy Award is especially meaningful because it comes straight from the source — local employees.
