    Learning Institutions:

    • Wilmette Institute - operates as a center of learning, offering academic, professional, and service-oriented programs related to the Baháí Faith. It offers well organized, formally conducted programs of education and training that are designed according to standards of academic excellence and the Baháí standard of independent investigation of truth in a spirit of humility, service, and unity. The Wilmette Institute's programs and services aim to enhance unity and fellowship among all people regardless of their ethnic, national, and religious background. Its services are available to students all over the world. I think this needs to be re-written so that it clearly describes what the Wilmette Institute offers.
    • Desert Rose Baha'i Institute - a community-based Center of Learning, guided by Baháí principles, that creates an atmosphere of spirituality which inspires artistic and educational development. Located halfway between Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona.

In cooperation with Forth Hays State University, this fully accredited program, which combines residential colloquia, community service, and online coursework, teaches students to foster a framework for consultative relationships that builds unity among all character education champions in the community-parents, children, junior youth and youth, teachers, community institutions, and other members of the community.
