Future of the University – A more inclusive community for learning

It sounds like a broken record these days but I truly believe that all institutions of higher education need to be working towards creating a safe space for people from all walks of life to come together to learn from each other and collaborate with each other in the quest for solutions to the problems we face as a global society.

As Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson suggested “maybe part of our formal education should be training in empathy… imagine how different the world would be”

I think the sooner we become aware of the impact we have in each other’s lives and how we are all interconnected, the sooner we will find the solutions to the problems we face today and the better tomorrow will help build.
