Archipelago Rising is a symbol of elevating the best, new emerging knowledge above the surface of the "water" for professional application; building "islands" of learning, literacy and accomplishment. Archipelago Rising refers to a principled, expert system of practice, proprietary knowledge and learning pointing to energetic future organizational growth and professional achievement. It is a system of knowledge validation which compliments, augments, and often challenges aspects of the traditional academic paradigm. It is an allusion to the Greek archipelago because we value sources of wisdom from antiquity.
