Our graduates are comprised of some of the most impressive and hard-working people in the world and many of them have distinguished records in a diverse and meaningful range of business, academic and social activities. Here’s a little more about the kind of students (we call them “learners”) the IOUF attracts:
Bremley Lyngdoh, PhD.
Bremley Lyngdoh is an international expert on the relationship between poverty reduction and environmental sustainability. Over the course of his career he has participated in many global conferences on issues relating to this topic, and he has won many awards for his work. He is the Founder and CEO of Worldview Impact and he is the Co-Founder of the Global Youth Action Network. This latter organization has been endorsed by famed primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall and former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Dr. Lyngdoh is also Co-Chair of the Caucus of the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development Education and he sits on the Board of Directors of PCI Media Impact.
Gulab Kothari, PhD
Gulab Kothari has established a solid track record throughout the world, most particularly in Asia, as a spiritual and literary expert. As Editor of the Rajasthan Patrika Group in India, he oversees a news publishing empire with a daily circulation of nearly 2.5 million.
Dr. Kothari has won numerous awards during his long association with Rajasthan Patrika and is highly respected as a writer. He has been particularly esteemed for his publication of the two-volume set, “Manas – Patterns in the Human Mind.” The books deal with the Vedas, a large body of texts originating in ancient India and originally composed, when they were finally put into written form, in Vedic Sanskrit.
Serguei Krivov, PhD
Serguei Krivov is the developer of the multiagent ecological simulator LEM (Logic for Eco-Modelling), a logic-based conceptual framework for modeling complex systems. The simulator has been used in a wide range of applications, such as the assessment of protein folding in scientific experiments and the analysis of routine peafowl movements for demographic purposes. Dr. Krivov works for the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, where he and his work have been key components of the Institute’s ARies Project, (ARtificial Intelligence for Ecosystem Services), a next-generation web application that was designed to make environmental decisions easier and more effective, while minimizing the possibility of negative environmental impacts.
These gentlemen are just three of the esteemed global citizens who have chosen to do their PhD through the Intercultural Open University Foundation (IOUF). We invite you to contact us for more information about how an IOUF degree might be helpful for you in the course of your own work in the field of social change. We currently have the capacity to take on more learners and we would be glad to be of assistance.
