Ben Nelson, founder of the Minerva Project

Higher education prides itself on equipping its seekers with the tools to optimally navigate reality and, at the very least, to tell fact from fiction. But what if this narrative in itself is a myth – an expensive, self-serving and highly ineffective myth?
