The Promise of Universal Education

A Conversation with Anya Kamenetz, author of
DIY U: Edupunks, Edupreneurs, and the Coming Transformation of Higher Education

By John David Mann



Anya Kamenetz writes about innovation, technology, sustainability and social entrepreneurship as a staff writer for Fast Company. Her first book, Generation Debt, drew national attention by pointing out that today's college students are the first American generation not to do better financially than their parents. Anya's newest book DIY U (Do-It-Yourself University) talks about learner-centered education, encouraging students to forge their own curricula without counting on established institutions to tell them who they are.
