Alternative University Project Redefines the Way We Learn.
From The Link: “Still in its infancy, the idea for the Alternative University Project first arose at McGill University, conceived by students in the midst of tuition protests and the looming possibility of student strikes. It has since grown to include over 50 members and many others who support the idea of stepping outside of the conventional university to learn. […] Redefining the idea of what a student is and the way in which the student learns is at the forefront of the AUP’s mission.”
