How to create a nurturing, supportive, collaborative, empathic, highest quality World University & School - like MIT OCW with Wikipedia - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects.
(For academic subjects, WUaS uses MIT OCW courses as a basis, and then facilitates wiki-adding to them, or teaching a related course, or starting a subject you wish to) ...
Committee decision-making in the manner of (nontheist) Friends (Quaker) as process - yes ... to create a nurturing, supportive, collaborative, empathic, highest quality World University & School.
... with a great manual ... :)
WUaS is a distributive network as is wiki as is the web.
Quaker process, emerging, loosely, with the industrial revolution and Enlightenment in England (1650s) seems to have ameliorated and mitigated some of the worst of human Pan troglodytism (common chimpanzee-ness - violence, war), at least within the Society of Friends, -interesting cultural discourse in modernity.
See, for example, both the nontheist Friends' subject
and Quaker subject
(http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Quakers_-_Religious_Society_of_Friends) wiki subjects - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects
- which you can engage. WUaS is like Wikipedia with MIT OCW where you can teach, add, create & learn.
My dad's ancestors built the first Quaker meeting house on Long Island. (Or something like that.)
