NEVER STOP LEARNING
you have to keep learning
You can't stop when you're "done" with school. Portland Underground Grad School (PUGS) is for people who want to keep learning and growing. Do you have a vision of your best self? Do you want to become more aware, caring, committed, creative, effective, flexible, fulfilled, future-oriented, generous, honest, improving, improvising, incisive, inclusive, independent, informed, initiating, innovating, inquisitive, insightful, joyful, kind, leading, resilient, rooted, self-aware, strategic, supportive or wild? Take our courses and become more of who you want to be.
Portland Underground Grad School (PUGS) takes the best of traditional schooling (connecting with other motivated people, learning from an expert faciliator), and leave out the worst (the exclusion, bureaucracy, and enormous debt burden). Classes are four weeks long, live, in-person, and each a little micro-culture of interesting learners. We welcome people of all incomes through our Pricing and Generosity Policy because we believe in this for everyone. If you're motivated to keep learning, come take a course and keep growing into your best self.
