Education in the 21st century will be affordable, open, and lifelong.

Portland Underground Grad School (PUGS) believes that knowledge and wisdom is everywhere and in everyone. We believe that in the 21st century, education will be participatory + consensual, instead of hierarchical + compulsory. Everyone is a learner and everyone is a teacher. For life.  

We believe that the best way to learn + grow is to surround yourself with people who are as curious, engaged, and motivated as you are. We also believe that we make greater and more meaningful contributions to the world when we are constantly educating ourselves. Check out our current and future courses and join us for a class sometime.
