At the Jameel World Education Lab, we see the potential of every campus to catalyze change and innovation for its learners, the community, industry, and the world. Every campus is part of an evolving ecosystem, and we see vast scope in equipping each to address emerging demands.
Educators everywhere are heeding the call for their institutions to deliver new capabilities, new ideas, new technologies, and new ways to make sense of the world. We help educational innovators reimagine uses of their institution’s talent and capabilities and their physical and virtual campuses. Campuses that serve as catalysts are hubs for new activities designed to tackle the most pressing local needs and opportunities–and to be ready for tomorrow’s challenges.
We champion projects that break down traditional barriers in the educational system by bringing real-world needs into the campus. We help find new ways to connect schools, colleges, universities, workplaces, entrepreneurs, and community hubs, and to bring lived experience and known gaps in technology, services, and ideas into learning and research. Access, equity, engagement, and imagination all benefit. Our projects challenge the stereotype of higher education as a remote ivory tower by making space for fresh, innovative ideas from underrepresented voices to tackle challenges in new and effective ways.
