Donald,

Heading to Reed College (Portland, OR) for a reunion then to Haverford College (Philadelphia, PA) for a Quaker colleges' educators' conference in the next 2 weeks, and ...

re: developing MIT OCW-centric wiki World University and School ...


WUaS baby steps (financially) are good for years,

but eventually the baby needs nourishment to grow ...


Are a luffing sailboat which needs wind, and maybe a sailing boat shipyard (e.g. for Yankee clipper ships ... as developing wiki online WUaS universities, including for Law, Medicine, Ph.D., Bachelor, and International Baccalaureate degrees, as well as fun and flourishing in STEM and high achieving learning, since WUaS is MIT OCW-centric), each wiki page at WUaS, as well as Law and Medical schools, etc., each a different sailing vessel, as well, better metaphors?  ...

Looks like WUaS will be able to join FAHE (Friends Association on Higher Education) as a development of heading to this Quaker college educators' conference at Haverford with intangible benefits ...

Here again is a list of the Friends Association for Higher Education (FAHE) Quaker schools' members from their website, as well as conference information - http://quakerfahe.com/ :


Barclay College ▪ Bryn Mawr College ▪ Earlham College ▪ Earlham School of Religion ▪ Friends University ▪ George Fox University ▪ Long Island University Global ▪ Guilford College ▪ Haverford College ▪ Malone University ▪ Pendle Hill ▪ Swarthmore College ▪ Whittier College ▪ William Penn University ▪ Wilmington College ▪ Woodbrooke Study Centre


*

Will some of the graduates of these mostly Quaker colleges feed into STEM-centric, MIT OCW-centric, Friendly-informed, C.C. (so free) World University and School's graduate programs?


*

And how also to infuse into MIT OCW-centric WUaS a kind of Stanford ethos (academic excellence, high achievers, innovation, ethical entrepreneurship, California and funkiness?)?


*

And I may return a San Francisco Friends' Meeting library book about Quakers and chocolate companies - Deborah Cadbury's “Chocolate Wars: The 150-Year Rivalry Between the World’s Greatest Chocolate Makers” - this Sunday (see too this New Yorker article - http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/books/2010/10/the-quaker-capitalist-and-the-chocolate-factory.html) which I think I'd rather get into in audio-format.
