The Presencing Institute and the Impact Hub network are partnering to bring the edX / MITx course U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self to 45+ Impact Hub locations around the world. We believe in the power of social change through entrepreneurial action, and see the potential for locally-rooted, globally connected communities of changemakers to catalyze systemic change with the support and learning available through the U.Lab course.

U.Lab: Transforming Business, Society, and Self is a free online edX/MITx course running from Sept 10th to Dec 7th with weekly course material. Through the course you will learn the basics of Theory U, a process for connecting to the more authentic aspects of who we are individually and collectively, and apply it to the issues and systems that matter most to you.
