Educating for Uncertainty: The University’s Preeminent Mission?

Educating for Uncertainty: The University’s Preeminent Mission?

Barbara Truman‘s insight:

My dance has extended beyond the bounds of academia as I am now what Dan Pink refers to as a Free Agent, especially after incorporating a non-profit company last week in the State of Florida.

Woodbury University’s commitment is admirable and I agree with attempts to infuse uncertainty across the curriculum.
