INTRODUCTION
ShapingEDU prioritizes lifelong learner success. This means we must recognize, respect, and welcome the complex humanity of learners and educators. We intentionally integrate intentional empathetic and authentic elements into learning systems that make learners feel welcome, respected, supported, and understood. ShapingEDU values individuals over affiliations and strive to build communities and design programs to support the wellbeing of lifelong learners’ whole, authentic selves.
