The Student Cooperative

The IGE Graduate Student Cooperative program.


Nature can be seen as a self-organizing process that cooperatively produces itself and its perfection through binding natural attraction energies.

For the past few years, graduate students and faculty have organized the Project NatureConnect program to emulate nature's self-organization. In the Orientation Course they learn how to cooperatively network and creatively help coordinate the program through their attraction to its beneficial process, outcomes and each other.

To the best of their ability degree students as part of their program and course work (ECO 751A), involve themselves in administering parts of the operation of the Cooperative, listed below, that attract them. There, as mid-career professionals, they share their expertise and time in a multitude of disciplines and interests while getting credit for doing so in their courses. They carry and teach this cooperative administrative skill upon graduation.

The Student Cooperative program is effective because most of our students have had years of experience in their professions and are determined to apply and continue the Orientation Course Oganic Psychology process of peacefully and supportively relating in balance with people and the environment.

Once a candidate is accepted into the program after completing Part Five of the Orientation Course they join the student cooperative, become part of a small supportive guide group, and network via email with the group and the entire student body internationally.
