The World of Germanic Studies, along with other traditional disciplines, is increasingly being eliminated from university programs, not only in the U.S. but also in Europe. The commodification of college degrees and the marketing of education as entertainment undermine more rigorous and rewarding disciplines in favor of "college-lite," which fails to meet the real needs of scholars and students alike. For this reason, the Woodharrow Institute has taken upon itself the task of educating a new generation of scholars in the field of Germanic studies.

The Institute will be independent of the current status quo, yet applying the same rigorous intellectual standards of traditional academia as found in the first three fourths of the 20th Century.
