We all came to college with a similar hope for our education: to learn the skills needed to serve others by solving vital and complex challenges. Because of this, school is not a chore, it’s a mission.
In early September we arrived in San Francisco, the first of seven world cities in which we will live and study. This first step in our educational journey has been both challenging and rewarding.
We have bonded over a shared purpose: to shape a new education system that meets our needs as students of the twenty-first century. This means exploring new ways of thinking and learning the skills necessary to adapt to a rapidly changing world.
Take some time to explore who we are and what we’re doing. If our values and vision resonate with you, we invite you to join the Minerva community.
Not only do we represent a total of 14 different countries, we also have an incredible variety of interests and passions. We’re a diverse, adventurous and enthusiastic group of people; there’s no such thing as average here.
Individually, we each offer something special, but together, we are a dynamic and purposeful community.
Learn more about the group that makes life here so energized, engaging and meaningful. From jam sessions to deep philosophical conversations, we are always actively exploring our world.
In high school there were the geeks, the artists, the social butterflies, athletes, student leaders and classroom rebels. Explore the perspectives and insights of six multi-faceted students, who fit all of those categories — but are defined by none.
Many universities emphasize their academic departments and campus facilities, but rarely talk about the importance of the values their students share. At Minerva, our common sense of purpose is what makes our student body so remarkable. We are each interested in a broad array of subjects and activities, but are working together to make this experience more valuable than what we would get out of a traditional institution.
