Free Think University offers multi-media courses about The Great Ideas that shape our culture. Based on inquiries from our students, we curate a collection of some of the best content from some of the world’s leading thinkers, creating a forum for the age-old contest of ideas. A pioneer in the “learn-to-earn” movement, Free Think U rewards students with scholarships for college and other life experiences.
“As a business owner, I really like the idea of connecting my donations and scholarships to a commitment to learn – to learn about the ideas that make for ethical and principled future leaders.”
“Free Think University is great in that each course bolsters critical thinking, and in the end, as a student, I am able to take a stance based on my own decision.”
“Free Think University has the potential to be . . . a Khan Academy for the Big Questions that students are asking, shaping the way we view the world and our ability to impact it. Free Think U can be that, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
“The name Free Think University is self-explanatory – it’s a place where you can think for yourself. This approach to learning promotes critical, creative thinking. It’s about open and informed and civil expression of ideas – sometimes with people who disagree with you. Where else is that happening in my generation?”
“Students are rarely encouraged to think carefully about issues from outside of a politically correct viewpoint. I appreciate how Free Think U is doing a great job of challenging that system.”
“As a leader in the financial services industry, I see too many people spend too much on higher education – without a strategic commitment to make sure that the students they are sponsoring are thinking critically about life’s most important questions. That’s why I’m a founding member of Free Think University.”
“Free Think U is doing a remarkable job of providing students with course experiences that are both pertinent to current events and to the bigger questions in life. It provides a perfect blend of topics that will keep a student engaged in the issues of today’s world.”
“I like Free Think U because they provide courses that lay out the 'non-PC' position and fairly contrast it with the other side.”
“Free Think University has great potential to revitalize the entire education system because it creates a learning environment where students are required to think for themselves. The effects of training students to think well as they examine the great discussions today and throughout history are multiplied exponentially as those students engage the world as an individual thinker, instead of a parrot.”
