Naropa Extended Campus offers continuing education, professional development and public programs for the lifelong learner within us all. Our programs promote Naropa University’s core mission and values in ways uniquely adapted to meet your ongoing educational needs.

Anchored in experiential and contemplative education principles, Extended Campus programs bring the embodied richness of the Naropa on-campus experience into accessible, learner-centered online and hybrid formats. By applying mindfulness infused learning across a variety of disciplines, we prepare compassionate leaders with the knowledge, wisdom and skills they need to “be the change” in their workplaces and communities.

Extended Campus programs are created and delivered by a diverse group of resident Naropa faculty, as well as distinguished visiting scholars who are widely respected for their academic, creative and socially engaged contributions. Many of our programs are enriched through impactful collaborations with other leading visionary organizations and mission-aligned partnerships.

By combining experiential depth, contemplative pedagogy, and online flexibility, Extended Campus offers dynamic public programs that support your personal and professional goals in ways only Naropa University can offer.
