Minerva Project And KGI Partner To Launch The Minerva Schools At KGI





SAN FRANCISCO, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Minerva Project, reinventing the university experience to develop global leaders and innovators across disciplines, and Keck Graduate Institute (KGI), a member of The Claremont University Consortium, today announced an innovative new partnership in higher education. KGI, an institution accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), is partnering with Minerva Project to launch the Minerva Schools at KGI, with the first class matriculating in the fall of 2015. The Minerva Schools' unique undergraduate program will complement KGI's current graduate-level offerings, expanding its portfolio and providing opportunities for student, faculty and administrative collaboration. The KGI-Minerva relationship and new programs are pending WASC approval.

"Educational models that improve upon the best programs currently available don't come along that often," said Sheldon Schuster, president, KGI. "We believe that Minerva Project is such a model, and, more importantly, we believe that its mission fits in perfectly with KGI's commitment to challenge higher education conventions and to foster innovation, active learning, and entrepreneurship. We have no doubt that the collaboration between KGI and Minerva will bring many benefits to our students and to the Institute as whole."

The KGI Board of Trustees approved the partnership with Minerva at the end of June, understanding that it would help both institutions to achieve their stated missions. The two institutions will work together to refine and improve strategies for student learning at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, to expand the team-based learning model, to increase students' global competency, and to further their shared interdisciplinary approach to academics.

The Minerva Schools, like KGI's graduate programs, will help high-performing students become mature, confident individuals and put them on a path to meaningful careers and fulfilling lives. The highly selective undergraduate program will offer students from around the world the opportunity to learn from accomplished faculty versed in the latest teaching methodologies to ensure positive student learning outcomes.
