Founding Members and Advisors

As our guiding principles state, we are a group of post-secondary academics whose values have aligned and who have come together to create an improved, alternative model of higher learning. Our goal then is to provide courses, conferences, and other modes of learning within our Centre. To pilot our project, we are offering several courses in a variety of disciplines.
