SelfDesign is centered on the understanding that we have the capacity to author our own lives from a place of resourcefulness, creativity, and possibility.

The experience in SDGI has put me in connection with kindred spirits, lifelong learners, educational and social activists—and these are just the students! The faculty is a group of the most knowledgeable and experienced people in any educational program of which I have been a part of.

The SelfDesign Graduate Institute is authorized by the Washington Student Achievement Council and meets the requirements and minimum educational standards established for degree-granting institutions under the Degree-Granting Institutions Act.

SelfDesign Learning Foundation Welcome

The SelfDesign Graduate Institute (SDGI) represents the vision that Brent Cameron (founder of the SelfDesign Learning Foundation in British Columbia, Canada) had of a post-graduate education program that embodies the theory and praxis of lifelong learning through SelfDesign. It is through Brent’s vision and the partnership between the SelfDesign Learning Foundation and the SelfDesign Foundation in Washington State that SDGI has become a reality that provides inspiration and growth to SDGI graduates and to the world around them. SDGI employs the trademark “SelfDesign” through an agency agreement between the two foundations.
