About the University
The Global University for Lifelong Learning (GULL) provides access to lifelong learning for people in communities and for workplace organizations around the world. To facilitate large scale participation, GULL only works with affiliated organizations who use GULL’s system for action learning to develop their own pathways to professional certification. GULL’s primary role is to recognize and certify evidence of learning and application. This arises as participants use and apply action learning and then cascade their experience to others. The evidence typically relates to change, impact and transformation and the objective is to enable participants and other stakeholders in the learning process to advance and improve.
In developing nations, GULL works with non-governmental organizations and other agencies in support of community-based initiatives for disadvantaged and marginalized groups and in economic terms, the poorest. In the workplace, GULL provides a powerful operating system for corporate business school and university applications. Please see the case studies for examples.
