Odysseus – The program with the world’s worst mission statement
Came across the Odysseus website today. (tagged a lot on twitter with #ODCSSS). Check out their mission statement,
Odysseus is innovative trans-institutional approach to the provision of a feeder pathways from undergraduate research experience into postgraduate research in new 4th Level Ireland Masters and PhD programmes
First of all there seems to be a second “a” in the first line. Second its unintelligible gibberish.
I much prefer the paragraph buried in the body text.
The primary goal of this school is to afford exceptional undergraduate students the opportunity to participate and contribute to exciting yet challenging research projects at leading research facilities and inspire them to go on to undertake research careers
I propose they throw away the first and use the second. the second paragraph describes a pretty good idea.
