The Transformative Studies Institute (TSI) is an independent institution of higher learning operated and governed by its faculty. Our mission is to become the best independent progressive university fostering intellectual growth, freedom of thought and speech, and respect of diversity and social justice. We hold that universal free education is a fundamental right upon which democratic societies are founded. We are therefore committed to providing and expanding free educational programs to the oppressed and lower economic population. As a participatory space designed to foster ethical and imaginative dimensions of learning, we offer an interdisciplinary Master’s and Doctoral degree that are closely aligned with our societal mission. All programs include concentrations in different areas of innovative knowledge and transformative learning that emphasize community and global responsibility and service.
