About FSI

In May 2007, the School of Communication (SOC) changed its name to the Foundation for the Study of Individualism (FSI). The name change reflects our shift in primary focus from the "streets" and "classrooms" to the formulcation and dissemination of the ideas emenating from those real-life experiences.


About SOC

The School of Communication (SOC) was founded in 1971 by a group of educators and professionals interested in social issues confronting inner-city youth. These individuals have been committed to social research that has included the development of programs designed to enhance learning opportunities that would assist youth in developing strategies for making sense out of their environments, increasing their personal control over their life-choices, and developing communication skills that would support their successes in school, work, and interpersonal relationships.
