About Us

We’re a 2-year nonprofit college in Portland at the heart of a movement toward a revolution in higher education. We are working to turn a backwards model of higher education frontwards by first teaching students how to ask and answer questions like, “who am I?” “what do I want to do with my life?” and “how do I get from here to there?” We combine a core curriculum of 9 courses designed to help build effective citizens with intensive workshops, advising, mentorship, and internship programs that are tailored to the individual student’s needs and dreams. As a nonprofit startup, we are still laying much of the groundwork of our programs and figuring out our systems. We opened our doors in 2016, and are currently teaching our third cohort of students. We are based out of our campus in the St. Johns neighborhood.
