Distrib-U empowers students as hubs of university resources, decentralizing higher ed, as community drives learning and makes direct impact.
What is the need are you focusing on?
There is very high and un-met demand for higher education. Many are unable to fulfill their goals to earn a degree due to financial, or family matters. The model of a centralized campus with a large number of commuters has a negative impact on personal and institutional sustainability goals. The isolation required by COVID-19 is also an opportunity to see how we can better use our resources, reduce cost, increase family and community engagement, and end the brain-drain many diverse and economically disadvantaged areas suffer from.
