Gifford Pinchot III was a founder of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute and when you talk with him you know that he absorbs a lot of ideas about education. Focusing on how to run a business in an ethical and sustainable way, the Bainbridge Graduate Institute challenges the assumed conflict between profits and ethics. As the world changes many of our assumed conflicts in education deserve to be challenged and we’re looking forward to Gifford’s insights.
