From The Western Canon University Convocation Speech

. . .Thomas Jefferson's original ideal conception of the University of
Virginia consisted of an institution where attendance would not be
taken, where there would be no formal classes, and where scholars and
students would be free to come and go during a perpetual conversation
centered about the Greats.  His ideal assumed a noble view of man's
natural intellectual inclinations, and we share Jefferson's fundamental
philosophy. We believe men are taught far more effectively by
inspiration than by coercion, and that the greatest teachers are not
those who prostelytyze, but rather those who write the Great Books, or
humbly point us in their direction. . . At Western Canon University we
look forward to having volunteer tutors preside over the discussion
forums, lead the debates, and suggest passages, works, and volumes of
criticism which might be of particular interest to scholars of the
Western Soul. We hope that you utilize our over one hundred lecture
halls and precept areas as supplements to your college assignments. You
can come to our campus throughout your entire life for your education .
. .If you would like to become a tutor at Western Canon University,
please let us know with which author or work your passions lie, and
we'll let you captain a Lecture Hall. Drop us a line at
