Who

  • Occupy University (OccU) is a university for everyone which believes that learning should be collaborative and politically empowering. We organize our educational encounters (some spontaneously, while others far in advance) to offer anti-institutional modes of learning, and respond to current crises and community interests. Our commitment to horizontal pedagogy intends to break the traditional hierarchy of the academy, with the belief that each person has something to teach and something to learn. OccU was founded in New York City in September 2011 as part of the Education and Empowerment working group of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
