I'd like to build a network of people in the Philly area who are interested in discussing higher education reform.
For the moment, this group is a "trial" to see if I can find a few interested people. If that's successful, we'll pick a time to get together to share perspectives and ideas.
To introduce myself briefly, I'm currently working as a user experience designer, which means my job is to make complex websites easy and enjoyable to use. I studied design and social science as an undergrad. Largely due to my experiences as a student, however, I've been interested in reforming higher education for years. I have a dream to someday start a university that will promote a different approach to college and graduate education, and until then, I'm working to build a better understanding of the higher education system and the challenges it faces.
