Thoreau College is seeking a group of five motivated, idealistic, and hardworking young people to come and live in Viroqua from late September 2017 to June 2018. While here, the Founding Fellows will collaborate with the Thoreau College Steering Team, local and remote partners, and each other to lay the foundations for the establishment of the college. The schedule of the year will include a mixture of classes focused on the philosophy and history of higher education and skills for social entrepreneurship, collaborative work sessions, artistic practice, and internships with partner schools, organizations, farms, and businesses. Throughout the year, the Founding Fellows will live and labor together to plant the institutional seeds from which Thoreau College will grow.
