This website was created by PoiesisCreations LLC to present a new concept of education that should permeate all levels of Education from pre-K to 20: Education with depth and wisdom, in close connection with the current needs of our societies, world and planet. The concepts of Deep Approach to Language Learning, Deep Education, and Deep University were developed by Dr. Francois Victor Tochon. Dr. Isabelle Druc Tochon created the section of the website that presents original videos for language learning and learning ceramology. Now Dr. Druc Tochon has a Vimeo channel where some of her videos can be watched.
During his Summer breaks, Francois Victor Tochon started creating online courses on the website, courses that met the purpose of Deep Education. The number of visitors to the website increased. Dr. Tochon proposed a revolutionary concept of a university that would propose academic programs on demand, created by the students with a template format. Deep University was born. Many pages on the website present this concept and the way it can be organized.
With a large international group of academic researchers Dr. Tochon created Deep University Press, which publishes research work of depth in various field of knowledge. Various books have now been published and are being published on these matters, some are bestsellers and translations are prepared in Chinese, Spanish, Turkish...

Deep University will soon exist as a bricks & mortar institution
Some lions leaders of the Lions Club International (LCI) consider that the goals of Deep University coincide with the goals of LCIF to help youth internationally acquiring world-related knowledge and wisdom.
A Board of Trustees is being created to implement Deep University mini-campuses in various countries, as well as inter-university agreements to support resourceful connective mass online open courses (cMOOCs). The mini-campuses will provide transdisciplinary cMOOCs to small teams of students who use these resources to create new, project-based knowledge leading the way toward a world guided by integrated science and wisdom. Deep University online programs are in preparation.
Dr. Yuangshan Chuang is the Secretary General of theLCI’s Past International Directors’ Joint Office in Taiwan. He has been elected by the Board of Trustees of Deep University Inc. for the years 2015 and 2016 as International President of Deep University over the setting of international Deep University campuses, under purview of Dr. Ching-Li Lee, the current LCIF Steering Committee Member. There are only 16 steering committee members appointed from 209 LCI member countries and only 17 international directors elected each two years also from the 209 LCI member countries. The purpose is to make Deep University affordable and available all around the world.
The Board of Trustees welcome proposals to create mini campuses in any country. There is a Contact form at the bottom of this page. On November 26 of 2014, 124.48 acres (52 hectares) have been acquired in Wisconsin, USA, to build the first mini-campus. Another terrain of similar size has been prospected in Queensland, Australia. Negociations are made to implement other mini campus near Granada, in Spain, and in Guilin, China. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors of a nine-story building in the center of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, have been reserved for Deep University coordination. So far the Presidents and Trustees of various universities have expressed interest in creating and benefitting from Deep University cMOOC programs and concepts. A partnership is being negotiated with the coming Laozi University in Luyi County, Henan Province, China.
