What is Better YOUniversity
Better YOUniversity was conceived in 2023 by sociologist Bertice Berry Ph.D. During the COVID-19 pandemic, when five of her friends asked for her help to get through the mental strains of the pandemic, Berry began to share daily stories through social media. Unaware that her posts were "Public", Berry was stunned to learn that the stories had gone viral. Thousands, then millions of people were being inspired daily.
She planned to stop when things got better, but realized there was a core group who could be described as Lifelong Learners." They wanted to know more about race, self-care, social structure and all kinds of topics that Berry had only been able to touch upon. Dr. Berry launched the platform with Diversity & Belonging 101 and immediately knew that these super learners were hungry for more.
Better YOUniversity is about becoming a better you. It enables the user to learn from some of the best, to become their best. Better YOUniversity is self-paced, allowing each person to learn and go further at their own speed.
"Some of the things we want to discuss in public demand that we have a private education first. The world has been racially, socioeconomically, religiously and sexually adjacent for too long. We are in rooms together, but still know very little about one another, making our interactions clumsy at best and offensive at worst." Berry says.
Better YOUniversity seeks to break down barriers and build bridges of knowledge, inspiration, and understanding. Become a better you, with Better YOUniversity.
