new learning cohort of an already established M.A. program in Whole
Systems Design (WSD) and Organization Systems Renewal (OSR):

> It's a new millennium and a new opportunity for you to achieve excellence
> as a designer and leader of change in your professional and personal
> life -- it's called Whole Systems Design and Whole Person Learning. This
