If you've got the idea that learning should be more than lectures in a classroom, we're right there with you.
Learning should be practical, connecting knowledge to real life. It should be exciting. It should connect what you know to what you do. It should give you the big picture as well as the details. It should happen everywhere, among people and ideas that are always in motion.
It should work for you.
And it should be moving you far beyond the next four years.
Knowledge in motion.
It's more than what you know. It's where you go with it.
