USR faculty organises itself as a network system. Tutors – whether artists, architects, builders or academics – are in turn hosts, moderators and conversational partners. USR faculty members and its associates share an interest for trans-disciplinary topics and hands-on research.
USR discards the traditional vertical teacher-student system in favour of a network system where individuals are partners in the process of learning.
