About the Ben Nelson Interview

Hi reddit. I am Ben Nelson, Founder of Minerva, a university program built for 21st century students. My passion for reforming undergraduate education was first sparked at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, where I received a B.S. in Economics. After creating a blueprint for curricular reform in my first year there, I went on to become the chair of the Student Committee on Undergraduate Education (SCUE), a pedagogical think tank that is the oldest and only non-elected student government body at Penn.

With Minerva, I saw an opportunity to implement these much-needed reforms. Together with our dedicated faculty and staff, I am working to nurture not only intelligence, but critical wisdom in our extraordinary students.
