This page is intended to supplement the resources described at Academics at Burning Man, the Academics Wiki, and the Academic Resources Page at Wikipedia. Although we cite many of the same references, we’ve organized them according to the 10 Principles and other related topics that we believe are essential for applying the 10 Principles within higher education. We’re continually adding to the list; contact Nicole if you would like to add something.
