To all Independent Scholars:  let us know if you will like to present / discuss your work during an upcoming Independent Scholars' Evening: 

Held every Thursday evening at 7.00 pm 

during a shortened academic year, these evenings are focused on the topic of presentation, and are intellectually stimulating, free, and open to the public.

Independent Scholars give a presentation-discussion to an audience of interested co-learners during these Evenings  which are dedicated to the scholars giving the presentation.  Audiences actively participate bringing their ideas and critique to the scholars' work. 

As co-learners, your presence is vital. Your presence supports the work of the Independent Scholars as their original work is being finalized for publication or further ongoing presentation. 

Dedicated to the promotion of the ongoing work of Independent Scholars, these Evenings are not commercial evenings, although many Independent Scholars have privately benefited commercially from their presentations at these Independent Scholars' Evenings. 

Additionally,  in today's economy, often citizens cannot, or do not wish to,  get monetary employment  in their area of interest and training; or their interests have changed and continue to change as they grow, as is often the case. These ISE or Independent Scholars Evenings are the venue or vehicle for this parallel work in today's modern era.

Keeping these considerations in mind, The Institute promotes the work of Independent Scholars. The Institute does this by providing a free -standing structured organization to Independent Scholars who give their presentations at these dedicated weekly Independent Scholars' Evenings. 

Not governed by any State Educational Board requirements, or potential existing bias of departmental heads or peers, yet within the perimeters of Federal and State laws, these free-standing Independent Scholars' Evenings sessions are dedicated to those who wish to use these evenings for their ongoing personal life's work.  Please visit our website: www.qcinstitute.org to review archives. 

These evenings are characterized by a vigorous, stimulating and uplifting intellectual atmosphere. All the presentations and opinions are authentic and original. 

Independent Scholars' Evenings are sponsored by The Institute for Cultural & Healing Traditions, a 501(c)3 organization according to the United States law at State and Federal levels since 1996. 

The Institute is free-standing. Although we have a Board of Directors, we do not control the content of presentations. Social perimeters and market forces decide and are factored into governing the success of Independent Scholars personal work.

The Independent Scholars' Evenings are purely a Community  organization for intellectual inquiry, expression  and the Freedom of Speech.
