Salon: “A Polymath University”

The next Columbus Futurists monthly forum will be Tuesday, July 7 at 12:00 noon via Zoom. The topic will be “A Polymath University.”

I have been exploring the idea of nurturing an undergraduate “major” in polymathy, or as a generalist.  Here’s an article that gives some sense of what I mean: What if we gave students the opportunity not to specialize in a discipline but to develop their own “rigorous generalist” program?  Like Mansharamani says, students would “read the whole paper.”   How would a degree as a “rigorous generalist” be received in the workforce?  I would like to draw upon your ideas and judgement for thinking through how such a program might be implemented. 

Please contact for RSVP and Zoom information.
