The following paragraph is the latest version of the Nomadic University’s principles and goals working group proposal. It was adopted as the latest draft by the Nomadic University at our meeting on Saturday, Nov 5th. 2011.
In accordance with OWS principles, we establish the nomadic university as education is a critical component of social, economic, and political transformation. It is committed to equal access to education. NU’s curricula will directly challenge the commodification of knowledge. Our processes and structures will incorporate and prioritize transparent direct participatory democracy. A truly liberatory approach to education must challenge all forms of privilege–personal, institutional and structural. With the understanding that everyone is a learner, we believe in learning via collaborative processes.
