White-tailed Ptarmigan: Announcement & News for WUaS's June 11, 2016 Monthly Business Meeting - A, Greetings from a Reed College Reunion

Dear Universitians, 

Greetings from a Reed College Reunion - 

NEWS about World University and School: 

a) WUaS's front page update - 

World University and School
seeks 17 year old students to apply for FREE 
Creative Commons' licensed best STEM OpenCourseWare-centric 
undergraduate degrees (BA/BS) this autumn 2016
(accrediting on CC MIT OCW in 7 languages and CC Yale OYC)
matriculating online in the autumn of 2017
(MIT OCW Creative Commons' licensing and endorsement clarifications ... )

b) Please let WUaS know if you are available to help develop a WUaS project. Julian in Romania and I are developing some team processes for developing WUaS further, which you'll find here - WUaS may eventually move into Phabricator for this as we scale, but for the time being we'll develop this in GDocs and may reach out to you with specific projects. 

c) To reiterate from last month: In an extended WUaS correspondence this spring with MIT Assistant Dean of Online Learning Cecilia d'Oliveira (who was executive director of CC MIT OCW for about 10 years before this), Creative Commons' licensed WUaS further clarified that we can "share" and "adapt" CC MIT OCW in 7 languages and CC Yale OYC, under specific attributes, by adding this to a database such as Wikidata/Wikibase in about ~358 languages, 

d) WUaS is also hoping to emerge out of Wikidata/Wikibase as wiki schools for open teaching and learning this summer (WUaS donated WUaS to Wikidata last autumn) perhaps with You at World University - - finding form in an adaptation of "[Wikidata] SQID evolved again: references" - 

e) WUaS is seeking high school students from around the world to apply this autumn 2016, as if applying to MIT or Stanford, for free CC accrediting undergraduate degrees, first in English, and matriculating online in 2017.

I've attached WUaS's financial report for May 2016 in this WUaS business meeting email. 
World University and School is looking for a new, Board member, for example, to focus on fundraising, and to actually bring in significant monies for WUaS.

And this month I'll continue to send out a second email after business meeting with WUaS Minutes. 

You'll also find some previous monthly business meetings (conducted electronically in the manner of F/friends) as examples in Google Hangouts here - WUaS's active blog with past monthly business information is here -

For people on the sporadic, somewhat frequent, WUaS, email list, or who wish to be, WUaS is posting actively to both the WUaS Google Group (, and the WUaS Yahoo Group (, both of which allow for daily and weekly digests. Please join these groups for daily and weekly digests.  

Concerning this WUaS team email list, we'll generally send out business meeting emails once a month. If you'd like to receive more frequent, sporadic, WUaS emails, please reply to this email telling me so. If you could, please REPLY with UNSUBSCRIBE, or an alternative email address, if you wish NOT to receive WUaS's emails, or receive them in a different email account, - and WUaS would be very grateful. 

World University and School is planning to become the MIT / Harvard / Yale / Stanford / Oxbridge of the Internet, and in all 7,097+ living languages and 204+ countries (in recent Olympics), with online, Creative Commons' licensed MIT OCW-centric, university degrees in large languages.
