Speaking on the second day of TNW’s 2018 conference, Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun lived up to her title of agitator by proposing a abolitionist idea: higher apprenticeship should be free for all, and the fact that it isn’t is having a abrogating impact on ability as a whole by airless addition and diversity.

When speaking about abeyant solutions to this problem, Dr. Ben Hayoun said:

How can we abutment a new diversity? How can we have better gender representation on a administration level? I’ve been told we need to start diversifying apprenticeship with K-12. Young kids, for sure. But you also have to do it on the back end.

Dr. Ben Hayoun’s own University of the Underground is tuition-free, with the students’ charge being covered by a non-profit. The model it aims to create would apparently alter ability and opportunities by abating abeyant acceptance of the burden of analytic solely for a career track affirmed to allay their debts.

One of the ways the University aims to cut down on costs is in its name — actually underground, it’s built absolutely to occupy unused spaces, with a library and sound studio being built under a night club.

For those who aggressive to donate to the cause, Dr. Ben Hayoun is analogously firm:

It’s time to give back. It’s not about altruistic to a cause for a year or two. It’s about altruistic for 100 years.

According to Dr. Ben Hayoun, one of the most important things the University of the Underground provides is proof there isn’t just “one type of model” for higher apprenticeship and that it can be made accessible to everyone, everywhere after them having to go into debt.
