Statement of Purpose: Wiki Education serves as the bridge between academia and Wikipedia. A small 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we run programs that seek to build connections between universities and Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects in the United States and Canada. In our flagship program, higher education instructors assign their students to add content to course-related articles on Wikipedia. Students gain key skills like media literacy, writing and research development, and critical thinking, while content gaps on Wikipedia get filled thanks to students’ efforts. We also offer professional development courses for subject matter experts to learn how to add their knowledge to Wikipedia.
