Minerva is nurturing critical wisdom for the sake of the world.

Because our future depends on better leaders, smarter innovators, and more informed global citizens, we are preparing the next generations of exceptional, lifelong learners to work together in solving the most complex challenges of our time.

Minerva Project is a leading educational innovator, providing top-tier higher education offerings to the Minerva Schools at KGI and other educational partners. Founded by Ben Nelson in 2012, Minerva has intentionally designed an education system comprised of an active learning pedagogy, scaffolded curriculum, and proprietary online, live seminar learning environment, Forum. 

Building upon the best traditions of liberal arts and sciences education, Minerva is committed to preparing global leaders and innovators for the complexities of the 21st century. By integrating pedagogy, curriculum, and the class environment in its innovative educational system, Minerva enables institutions of all types and sizes to improve learning outcomes for students around the world.

Minerva is deeply principled and dedicated to enhancing your potential and enabling your success.

We are intensely focused on improving our collective future by advancing your individual development. Our organization is defined by seven Guiding Principles, which inform every decision we make.
