Our Mission

Noodle helps universities use technology to achieve higher engagement, capacity, and accessibility. In doing so, we speed the digital transformation of higher education.

More specifically, we build, grow, and administer innovative, excellent online and agile programs. Our experts, technology, and resources help faculty create superb learning experiences and streamline administration, and our marketing and recruiting teams help lower the cost of higher education by spreading universities’ fixed costs among more students and programs.  
This is in line with our belief that American higher education can be more robust, more accessible, and more affordable.

Universities and colleges need to increase access and reduce costs while optimizing student engagement. And it’s why we’ve built a team unique in its experience, flexibility, diversity, transparency, efficiency, and commitment.

We honor the academic and cultural values of our university partners, and demonstrate that public-private partnerships can fundamentally transform the higher education landscape for the benefit of all.

We have high standards and we don’t compromise on them. We commit to getting the job done and done well.

Never stop learning
