The Office of Strategic Initiatives (OSI) develops new academic enterprises for the Provost, locally, nationally, and globally. OSI provides centralized support for faculty and staff who seek to develop new, large-scale programs or partnerships driven by education innovation. We bring stakeholders together from across campus in support of new initiatives, and we collaborate on program design and management, staffing, and funding. We believe in transformative change for the university through partnership and action.
OSI is the home for all Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) at the University of Colorado Boulder. We build MOOC-based educational offerings that embrace technology with learning in order to inspire teaching and expand student access to education.
