This effort is a catalyst for fundamental and applied research in the arena of how technology can expand the essence, quality, and utilization of knowledge and skills for people learning, creating an ecosystem focused on lifetime careers, education, research, advising/mentoring, and services that enable the people and organizations of our state to be the benefactors of this new thinking, empowering them to find solutions to the most pressing global problems and, in so doing, improving higher education and, thus, the human condition.
