The remarkable process of "globalization" that is currently taking place on planet Earth extends to every aspect of modern life. Moreover, it is accelerating on a daily basis. Quite literally, our planet is rapidly being transformed into one, all-encompassing "global village."
The Arvisom Institute (pronounced AR-vuh-sum) was founded in the year 2000, as a international education center aspiring to make a positive contribution to this process of globalization. Its activities are wide-ranging, however there is a common thread that links together all of the divergent spheres within which it is engaged. That "common thread" -- which informs and directs all of its multitudinous activities -- is the stress it lays upon a single, underlying IDEAL: the Oneness of Humanity. Therefore, the goal of the Arvisom Institute, as an educational establishment, is ultimately metaphysical in nature. However, on a more "pragmatic" level, its mission can be expressed in terms of four primary goals, two centering on the individual, and two with a focus on the collective body of the "global village." These goals can be formulated as follows:
GOAL #1: The Arvisom Institute provides its clients with a wide assortment of resources that they can utilize to improve the quality of their lives in a physical sense. This facet of our mission emphasizes "material" prosperity and "worldly" success.
GOAL #2: The Arvisom Institute provides its clients with a wide assortment of resources, utilization of which will gradually bring them to a clear understanding of this all-important truth: There is an intimate connection between spiritual insight and physical well-being.
GOAL #3: The Arvisom Institute seeks to facilitate communication between the diverse elements of the "global village" (i.e., the various nations, ethnicities, and races of humankind), by providing a wide array of translation services between the various "world languages," and by offering a variety of relevant tutoring services.
GOAL #4: The Arvisom Institute seeks to facilitate communication between the diverse elements of the "global village" (i.e., the various nations, ethnicities, and races of humankind), by vigorously promoting English as the "international language" of this global village. More specifically, assistance is provided to learners and teachers of English throughout the world, with a view to bolstering the current status of English as the one language that every "world citizen" should be acquainted with, in order potentially to communicate with every other member of the global village.
Finally, beyond these rather abstract philosophical observations, one additional point should be stressed here: The Arvisom Institute has a significant role to play in the widening of access to "higher" education. Getting a "college education" can be prohibitively expensive, and the educational resources made available through the Arvisom Institute -- by comparison with traditional colleges and universities -- are an extremely affordable alternative. Thus, the Arvisom Institute has a vital role to play in opening pathways for personal growth and development to ever larger segments of the world community.
