Episode 3: Talha Khan of UniversityDAO
Lisa Yu interviews Talha Khan of UniversityDAO.
UniversityDAO is a DAO that's looking to end student debt by empowering students to own their own university. Their mission is to form a new university system that solves the hardest problems of education that we face today.
Since the late 11th century, Universities have been local, centralized, entities, operating as the arbiters of truth, knowledge, and education. In the traditional University system we have today, Boards, Trustees, Presidents, and Regents among others, control most of the governance structures employed within the primary educating systems of our world, ultimately marginalizing the very people the Universities serve in the first place, the Students.
On the other hand, student debt has reached $1.75 trillion in the US alone. The world needs an answer, our nation needs an answer, and our children, the ones who will bear the brunt of our failures, deserve to live in a world where education is accessible to all.
UniversityDAO will present a novel approach for a higher educational system that unites the government and its educational institutions, together, with its financial markets, through the creation of University DAO, a tokenized University that aims to end student debt and empower our nation's scholars to truly own their university.
