Mission Statement

The mission of the Center for the Advancement of Contemplative Education (CACE) is to organize the deep and broad implementation of contemplative pedagogy at Naropa University and beyond and most importantly to bring Naropa faculty's expertise into the national conversation about contemplative education. We seek to develop the field of contemplative higher education to reflect cultural diversity and include voices derived from world wisdom traditions. The overarching goal of CACE is to help the university achieve greater clarity about the definition, methods and outcomes of contemplative education; greater effectiveness in providing it to our students; greater inclusiveness in its ongoing vision and revision; and greater success at sharing what we have learned with the larger world, both in higher education and beyond.

CACE's mission is to offer Naropa University's more than thirty years of experience and its faculty's expertise in contemplative education to the higher education community. We seek to develop the field of contemplative higher education to reflect cultural diversity and civic engagement across disciplines.
