Thank You: People

Thank you to all the learners that have participated at Runaway University. SO far, that’s:

  • RULA I – 216 students / 72 countries
  • RULA II – 105 students / 26 countries
  • Total: 321 students / 75 countries

RULA exists because of your spirit of wonder and curiosity. Because of your love of travel and your enthusiasm for a classroom without walls. Because of your inclusive, expansive thirst for life lived large, yet humbly. Because of your daily expression of education not simply as the regurgitation of codified practices, but as an experience to be continually discovered. Because of your living expression of the power of capital "E" Educatfun! Thank you for being a part of our exploration.

Thank You: Tools
