About Us

Unmudl is powered by community colleges to connect learners to jobs.

On October 14, 2019, five community colleges and NISOD came together and agreed to Blaze The Way Forward For The 64.5M Working Learners and 30M Employers in the US and ensure that every community college learner gets into a job and that every company has the best talent to help it grow.

Our Mission

Unmudl's mission is to provide learners, particularly working learners, with multiple pathways to learning and employment, with clear signalling as to the time, cost, and uncertainty of each. Via our skills-to-jobs marketplace, every learner can get skills to go from skills-to-job with the shortest, most flexible, and affordable path possible.

Our Vision

In Unmudl's vision of the future, the high cost, rigidity, and uncertain reward of pursuing higher education would be replaced with an economical, transparent, infinitely adjustable sequence of lifelong learning stints in which the employer, college, and learner are in constant communication about current needs, and the system can respond quickly to each.
