Mike B, Vice President and Dean of Student Services, Interim Director for the Center for Life Beyond Reed
Brooke H, Assistant Director for Strategic Partnerships
Dear Mike B and Brooke H,
Greetings from the San Francisco Bay Area where I just participated in a Reed College Alumni work morning at MLK park in Oakland. I graduated in 1985 from Reed and am developing startup online wiki CC World University and School, which is like CC Wikipedia with best STEM OpenCourseWare (e.g. CC MIT OCW in 7 languages and CC Yale OYC), and planning accrediting online university degrees and IB high school diplomas in most countries and in their main languages. I've had an hour interview with former President Colin Diver about WUaS in his office in Eliot Hall a few years ago, have communicated about this with President John Kroger, and I know KA from Reed in the early 1980s. Reed College Professor of Dance CM is also a friend and former housemate in a Reed House from the early 1980s.
I'm emailing to inquire about the possibility of a strategic partnership with Reed in WUaS hiring Reed College students remotely as interns to grow and develop WUaS. WUaS would like to hire Reedies to help develop main World University and School wiki subject pages - e.g. http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects - and for matriculating WUaS students eventually, as well as possibly teach World University and School's Hum 101 in Google group video Hangouts in conjunction with faculty lecturers in video, for example, among many other jobs. WUaS would like to become a major academic employer worldwide, and become the Harvard of the internet in each of all 200+ countries and their main languages, as well as create online wiki schools for open teaching and learning in all 8,000+ languages.
Might we possibly please talk about this further on the telephone? How else would you suggest we might proceed with this conversation? I'm planning too to attend Reed Reunions from June 10-June 14, when we might also talk in person.
All the best,
- Scott MacLeod - Founder & President
- World University and School - like Wikipedia with best STEM-centric OpenCourseWare - incorporated as a nonprofit university and school in California, and is a U.S. 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt educational organization, both effective April 2010.
Could/will WUaS eventually HIRE 500,000 smart 19 year olds in all 8000 languages?
Thank you for this opportunity to talk further about Reed College and WUaS as a Strategic Partnership, and particularly initially about hiring Reedie interns and other related questions from my email!
I'll call you, as Assistant Director of Strategic Partnerships at The Center for Life Beyond Reed, on Thursday, and I've booked this here - ... .
Looking forward to talking with you soon,
