We aim to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.
Udacity : Our mission is to bring accessible, affordable, engaging, and highly effective higher education to the world. We believe that higher education is a basic human right, and we seek to empower our students to advance their education and careers.

Education should empower students to succeed not just in school but in life.
