NewU is the First Private Nonprofit College to Launch with In-Person Instruction in the United States in Over 15 Years

We do things differently. Faster, cheaper, better. We built NewU from the ground up. We took everything that works in college education, and removed everything that doesn't.”

— Stratsi Kulinski, Founder and President

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2021 / — NewU University offers a much needed affordable, high quality, and stress-free college experience to university students from across the United States. Its Bachelor's degree programs are in-person, not online.

The newest entrant in the Higher Education space bursts onto the national stage with a highly differentiated and innovative offering designed to tackle head on some of the biggest challenges college students and parents increasingly struggle to overcome such as student debt, graduation and job placement rates, and student wellbeing.

Tuition at NewU is only $7,500 per semester, with programs designed to complete in just 3 years, not 4. This means that total tuition for a NewU student over the entire course of study, even without financial aid, is 70% lower than tuition at other private nonprofit colleges, and lower than most public unviersities, too [1].

NewU is also innovating by completely taking the stress out of applying to college. In addition to its low and affordable tuition, the university is removing all cost, stress, and anxiety from the application process. NewU pioneered a radical redesign of the traditionally lengthy, stressful, and exhausting process of college applications. Prospective students fill in a completely free online form in less than 10 minutes, attach an electronic copy of their high school transcript and photo ID, and submit the application from their computer or mobile phone. In another first in Higher Education, NewU also removes a major anxiety factor from the process as applicants get a decision in record time within 24 hours from applying.

This unique university launches with a first class of students and in-person (not online), programs in Washington, DC this Fall. NewU offers multidisciplinary, practically-grounded, and future-proof courses and majors designed to equip students with the skills and tools needed to succeed in a world of unprecedented uncertainty and constant change. Students gain practical knowledge and real-world skills, critical thinking, collaboration, resilience, intercultural proficiency, and the propensity for lifelong learning. These are some of the key success factors in our new normal, where Artificial Intelligence, automation, rapid innovation, and demographic, pandemic, and financial shocks change not only the job market, but entire industries and societies overnight. NewU’s inaugural programs in Creativity and Innovation Leadership; Entrepreneurship; and, Psychology and Human Behavior, are purpose-built to enable students to succeed and find happiness wherever life takes them. NewU and its programs are licensed by the Washington DC Higher Education Licensure Commission (HELC). In a unanimous decision, the 5-member Commission granted a license demonstrating that NewU meets and exceeds all standards applicable to universities in our nation’s capital.

Stratsi Kulinski, NewU University’s founder and President, said: “Many talk about Higher Education reform, but meaningful action just can’t come soon enough. Students and parents continue to struggle mightily to pay for college, and way too many live with the dire consequences of crushing student loans, starting but not finishing college, and woeful employment prospects, all because of the failed promise of a Higher Education system that refuses to embrace systemic restructuring and reform for so many years now. At NewU we believe in leadership by example, so we took action to tackle these challenges. We built a brand new university from the ground up. We implemented everything that works well for students and parents at a great university, and threw away everything that doesn’t. Higher Education done right is a powerful enabler of a life of purpose, service, and prosperity. Education is the great equalizer, but not when it burdens us with heavy student loans, gives up on us before graduating, or fails to prepare us for the future. Our children, neighbors, and friends deserve much better. It is time for a new breed of university. It is time for NewU.”

NewU University is now accepting applications for its first ever class of students for this Fall at

What Makes a Great University?

Nonprofit Group Launches Business Pandemic Preparedness System

Press Conference June 1st, 2021, 11:00 am EST; the world needs pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and universal safe business practices.

We have to change the narrative. We need to take the politics out of our governance. We need to come together as a community if we are to be successful.”

— Steve Anderson

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 1, 2021 / — Over the past year, SmALL businesses have felt helpless, hopeless, unsupported, and confused. Witnessing the pain and challenges felt and faced by honest, hardworking people in our communities, it became very clear we MUST take action. This sparked the inception of the organization called Social Distance Management (SDM).

Edward Henry Company (EHCO) has made the decision to give away all licensing rights and intellectual property of SDM, which includes Social Distance Advisory (SDA), Social Distance Compliance (SDC) systems, and research to SmALL Business is Essential (SBE).

SDM believes that all businesses need universal compliance measures to operate safely during a pandemic and other unprecedented times. By having access to these practical systems, SBE will have the resources it needs to develop the support for all businesses. ALL businesses are essential, and business continuity is the focus. Any opportunities managed from these systems will help all businesses secure and implement adequate steps to stay open, thrive, and have their voices heard.

The Journey of Social Distance Management

In March of 2020, EHCO started SDM with a mission to stand by businesses. Two months later, on May 11, 2020, with extensive research, collaboration and data collection, they released their first version of universal compliance standards.

Under SDM, sub-resources, including SDA and SDC systems, were established to display universal compliance guidelines and assess the threat levels in specific areas to protect the population. The idea to start SDM came from the utmost care about people and businesses, not from a political approach. Universal health measures and the life of our economy are not two isolated conversations. It is ONE conversation.

To contribute to the information gathered, in July of 2020, a Research Internship was formed to discover and outline details on various businesses in Canada and the United States. The outcome of the research included details which contributed to SDC, such as further development of safety protocols, requirements for operation, compliance measures, capacity limits, and PPE requirements. SDM used the data collection to create additional tools, such as self-assessment audits that provide a checklist for what businesses need to stay compliant and operate safely.

Taking its cue from other systems such as ISO, Homeland Security, The World Health Organization, and research from John Hopkins University, SDM developed its Advisory system. This system was developed with the intent to assist businesses and communities in preparing for crises and mitigating restrictions. “There needs to be accountability to the decisions that are being made that affect our small businesses,” said President of EHCO, Edward Henry.

The Advisory system narrows in on the WHO’s Pandemic Phases and the Homeland Security system and uses five levels of risk and threat: low, moderate, substantial, severe, and critical. The colors associated include green, blue, yellow, orange, and red. Each phase clearly defines which business practices, products, and services are considered essential and non-essential and the types of businesses permitted to open during each phase. The Advisory system is currently in the process of implementing data from John Hopkins University, along with data collected by other reputable models.

Despite the aforementioned systems, resources, and extensive research to support our findings, ambiguous guidelines still remain. Therefore, businesses are left without genuine reasons as to why they cannot safely reopen and recover.

A Multi-faceted Problem Requires Innovative Solutions

Stand By SmALL Businesses and Our Communities

SmALL Business is Essential

After spending some time in the development phase, SDM ventured out and sought support from government officials and local politicians. After COUNTLESS meetings and constantly being redirected elsewhere, it was time to take drastic action. Edward Henry states, “Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.” This year has been about a lot of the wrong things, and in the beginning, SDM was seen as a profit-making opportunity, and taking advantage of a terrible situation. The lack of change cannot continue. Coming together as a collective unit is essential.

For sustainable change to happen, SDM’s resources need to be placed in the right hands. They need to be placed with an organization that isn’t narrow minded, but bilateral with its thinking so sectors, such as health and business can come together. SBE is a not-for-profit association that operates based on three core pillars: pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and safe business practices. SBE aims to collectively arm small businesses with the support, protection, and resources needed to operate safely while envisioning economic recovery and stability through business unity.

This pandemic is not just a small business problem; it’s a world problem. The government’s attempt to segregate businesses into non-essential and essential classifications created ambiguity. This ambiguity initiated the thought that, not some, but ALL businesses are essential. As EHCO releases all of its SDM systems, traffic, assessment, and auditing models to SBE, a new leadership position begins. SBE’s goals encompass the severity of the issue at hand, which is why there is no better person for the job than Steve Anderson. As a Social Entrepreneur, Olympic Gold Medal Coach, and Community Champion, Anderson takes over as President of the not-for-profit association SBE. Edward Henry states, “My choice to recruit Steve Anderson was because of his character, coaching background, competitive nature to overcome challenges, and his experience with a multi-faceted range of individuals.” Speaking to Anderson’s character, he doesn’t make excuses. Steve is a good man, and SBE needs his character to bring everyone together.

Along with Anderson’s motivating character, he is the first African American to coach an Olympic team in indoor or beach volleyball and the first to win an Olympic Gold Medal in either practice. Anderson is highly committed to being the driving force behind SBE to support ALL businesses. He, along with the efforts of SBE, will pave the way towards a better normal.

Our current actions reflect our future results. If we don’t continue putting in effort and showing our care for our businesses, we will continue losing pieces of our community and, in turn, our economy. Small businesses have experienced unfair measures and restrictions, putting them at risk for permanent closure. Continuous lockdowns are not a solution. “This current pandemic has cost over $20 trillion because we were not prepared,” said Edward Henry. The definition of insanity is to perform the same actions and expect different results. “We will do this over again if we don’t start changing the way we do things,” he added. The focus needs to be on Social Distance Compliance and universal protocols to preserve business continuity. If we want an improved normal, we need to stand by SmALL businesses and our communities. There is no better time than now to help businesses transition from lockdowns and longer than expected restrictions.

(Video) Iran Election 2021: MEK and NCRI Supporters Echo Calls for Nationwide Boycott

31 May 2021 - Iranians supporters of the MEK and NCRI continued their protests in solidarity with the Iranian people’s nationwide campaign boycotting the regime’s sham presidential election.

More Iranians are joining the campaign of boycotting the regime’s sham election with the MEK’s Resistance Units at its forefront.”


PARIS, FRANCE, June 1, 2021 / — Iranians, supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) continued their protests in solidarity with the Iranian people’s nationwide campaign boycotting the regime’s sham presidential election.

On Saturday, members of the Iranian diaspora in Cologne, Germany, held a protest, echoing calls for the nationwide boycott of the regime’s sham election in June. They carried pictures of the Iranian Resistance leader, Mr. Massoud Rajavi, and the NCRI’s president-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi.

In addition to Cologne, Stuttgart also witnessed a protest by the MEK and NCRI supporters.  

On May 29, Iranians in the Netherlands held a protest in the Dam Square in Amsterdam, calling for the boycott of the regime’s sham elections.

Besides protests in the Netherlands and Germany, members of the Iranian diaspora and the MEK supporters held protests in Gothenburg and Stockholm, Sweden, and in Vienna, Austria.

During their protests in various cities across Europe, Iranians chanted slogans such as: “Our answer to the 1988 Henchman [Raisi] is an overthrow,” “Raisi, Raisi, you’re a malicious murderer,” “Khamenei is a murderer and the Iranian people’s enemy,” “Down with the rule of the mullahs. Viva Rajavi,” “Mullahs in Iran have blood on their hands, and our vote is regime change,” “Raisi! The Iranian people have not forgotten that you are a butcher of the 1988 massacre,” “Raisi, the criminal! Your trial is on the way,” “Rajavi Yes, Mullahs No, they are terrorists they must go,” and “The first word, the last word, overthrow! Overthrow.”

More Iranians are joining the campaign of boycotting the regime’s sham election with the MEK’s Resistance Units at its forefront. Ebrahim Raisi, the current Judiciary Chief, is one of the main perpetrators of the 1988 massacre of over 30,000 political prisoners. 

In line with the ongoing protests outside of Iranian, Iranians started an online campaign on Sunday at 1730 CET. Thousands of tweets were posted during this Tweet-A-Thon, calling for boycotting the Iranian regime’s sham presidential election.

Protests outside Iran and Thursday’s virtual campaign for boycotting the regime’s farce elections are in line with the ongoing campaign by the MEK’s Resistance Units inside Iran for boycotting the regime’s elections and popularizing this campaign.

For the last few months, the MEK’s Resistance Units have expanded their activities across Iran, making a significant push in the previous few months for boycotting the regime’s sham. In April, over 250 areas in 27 provinces checkered across Iran witnessed activities calling for a complete boycott of the regime’s sham presidential elections in June.

The regime’s officials and state-run have expressed fear about the MEK’s role in leading the nationwide campaign of boycotting the regime’s election.

“The opposition, inside and outside the country, is announcing that we should not participate in the elections to undermine the legitimacy of the system,” Mohammad Sadr, a member of the regime’s Expediency Council, told the state-run Etemad daily on May 20.
