The world needs a place for problem-solving to flourish; an ecosystem where the knowledge and creativity of the many can be harnessed for good. We are creating a global university devoted to problem-solving. Pluribus is an inclusive community for engagement where people can work together to solve problems and improve the problem-solving process itself.
We established a “university” structure because university ecosystems have ingredients fundamental to our success. Although today people tend to equate “university” with student-centric things like lectures, tuition, and degrees, that view ignores the more important traditions and aspirations of universities worldwide. As set forth in the Magna Charta, universities should serve the broader society by advancing the frontiers of knowledge, creating community, safeguarding academic freedom, transcending borders, and connecting researchers. These aspects align naturally with our multi-faceted mission
Wikipedia is the largest repository of knowledge because it harnessed the power of many to build an encyclopedic resource for all. Similarly, Pluribus will utilize modern technology to harness the power of many to solve our challenges big and small.
We are organizing the University into four Institutes devoted to different aspects of the problem-solving process: Collaboration, Knowledge, Innovation and Implementation. Each Institute will be a repository of leading-edge tools and information relating to the Institute’s focus, and they will actively advance their respective fields. Together, the Institutes will work to solve specific problems, using each problem-solving effort to hone their skills and also to learn new lessons.

E Pluribus University transcends boundaries to be a place where creative problem solving is not restricted. To achieve this our campus is structured in 3 key areas. We are currently seeking our physical campus to be our hub of operations, this will be located in Venice, California; the new Silicon Beach. In order to be agile and accessible we also have a mobile campus in the form of a double decker bus; the PluriBUS. In addition to the physical, we also want you to feel at home here on our website, you can contribute here and have just as much impact. We will keep you posted throughout 2017 on our progress with our campus lay down.
