Peer 2 Peer University
Peer 2 Peer University (we usually just say P2PU) is a grassroots network of individuals who seek to create an equitable, empowering, and liberating alternative to mainstream higher education. We work towards this vision by creating and sustaining learning communities in public spaces around the world. As librarians and community organizers, they bring neighborhoods together to learn with one another. As educators, we train facilitators to organize their own networks and they develop/curate open educational resources. As developers and designers, they build open source software tools that support flourishing learning communities. And as learners, they work together to improve upon and disseminate methods and practices for peer learning to flourish. P2PU is a distributed organization, incorporated as a 501(c)3 in the United States. Their network stretches the globe, with their heaviest concentration of work currently happening in Canada, Kenya, South Africa, and the United States. They strive to model our educational values in our organizational structure; as such, we set goals and make decisions collectively as a community. They invite you to join our virtual community and view their governance guidelines, annual goals, and policies (as well as all source code) on Github.
