Our mission is to become a radically new model for higher education, liberating individuals with skills for better career outcomes, more life fulfillment, and solving the world's greatest challenges.
Our vision is a world where every individual has access to education that will help them find purpose in solving global challenges that create a better future for all of humanity.
Our world is made up of interconnected complex systems. Complex systems are defined by their individual parts and the summation of those parts as a whole. If you wish to create an intervention within a complex system you can either change the entire system, which will result in a change of its parts, or you can change the parts, which will result in changing the entire system. So we believe that an intervention at the level of the individual will effect the larger global society.
We believe that education underlies all other complex problems in our society. If we solve the problems in the education system, we can prepare students with the skills they need to solve all other global problems. So education of each individual becomes the primary intervention in addressing the complex systems of our world.
According to Enso's World Value Index, 91% of people expressed importance to live life with a sense of purpose. Yet, people are suffering from depression worldwide and suicide is a leading cause of death for young people. Our systems of education have neglected moral, social, and emotional development, along with other types of education that enhance individual experience beyond what is necessary for entrance into the labor market.
Technological innovations are outpacing the available skilled talent. The World Economic Forum predicts over 50% of the one billion global knowledge workers are projected to need upskilling or retraining to avoid being pushed into under- or unemployment. By 2030, this global shortage of skilled talent is projected to result in an $8.5 trillion loss.
Globalization, automation, skills becoming redundant in a time of rapid transformation and growing demand for different skills — these are the drivers of the skills gap in our global economy.
The dawn of the 21st century has proven to be a critical time in global transformation where humanity has fundamentally impacted our planetary and societal complex systems to the point of crisis. Climate change, poverty, pandemics, social injustices — the global problems needing solutions are beginning to stack up. For humanity to continue it’s evolution, we believe that higher education must play a critical role in preparing individuals with skills to solve these problems.
Our solution is to liberate and educate individuals with the belief, willpower, and skills to transform their life & discover a fulfilling purpose to change the lives of others. So we are building an alternative, online university that turns your passions into purpose by helping you master skills to launch a career solving global challenges.Learn More
