It was great to hear your talk about AFSC's work in North Korea and
Zimbabwe at Palo Alto Friends' Meeting last Sunday, and nice to see you
in passing at Pacific Yearly Meeting's annual sessions at Walker Creek Ranch on Monday. It was also great to talk with you at Friends' General
Conference in early July, where World University and School was an
I'm writing to explore further how to continue our conversation at FGC
and PYM about potential AFSC and World University and School
collaborations. Some possible ideas from my perspective include informal
student centers at AFSC offices around the world, and letting AFSC
networks know about World University and School's upcoming, free, open,
online, people-to-people, wiki, teaching and learning opportunities
(plus MIT OCW-centric for academics for free bachelor, Ph.D., law and
M.D. degrees, too), planned for all languages and countries. I can see
further possibilities in collaborating around paid and volunteer
internships. I can also envision possible collaborative, AFSC/WUaS,
fundraising opportunities, as well, in terms of free, accredited,
university (MIT OCW-centric) education for countries vis-a-vis their
companies, philanthropies and governments.
In driving north with S.M. of the AFSC SF office to PYM, he
mentioned L.D. in the AFSC Philadelphia office as a kind of AFSC
education liaison, especially in terms of college-related things, I
think. I'm curious about your ideas in these respects, as well.
WUaS could potentially fulfill AFSC's mission
(http://afsc.org/mission-and-values) in new ways, as well as further it
as it is. And WUaS is informed with Friendly business process, via
monthly business meeting in the manner of f/Friends, as well as has a
number of Quaker-focused, wiki, subject pages.
Looking forward to further communication with you, and thank you!
With Friendly regards,
