Extended Campus

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

Applying experiential and contemplative learning across a variety of disciplines, we prepare mindful leaders with the knowledge, wisdom and skills they need to “be the change” in their workplaces and communities. Anchored in mindfulness and compassion practices, Extended Campus programs nurture the openness and equanimity that arise from authentic insight and self-understanding.

Naropa Extended Campus brings the immersive quality and embodied richness of the on-campus experience into accessible, learner-centered online and hybrid learning formats.

Our Extended Campus programs are created and delivered by a diverse group of instructors, artists and practitioners, including the same faculty who teach in our degree programs, as well as many visiting scholars and changemakers whose journeys have intersected with Naropa in significant ways. Our instructors are leaders in their fields who are widely respected for their academic, creative and socially engaged contributions.

Many Extended Campus programs are further enriched through impactful collaborations with Naropa’s deep network of mission-aligned partnerships. Our long-cultivated relationships with other leading visionary organizations enable us to support the creation and delivery of uniquely innovative and original content.

By combining the best of experiential depth and online flexibility, Naropa Extended Campus offers dynamic programs for curious and engaged learners. Your personal and professional goals will be supported by a diverse community committed to the lifelong joy of learning, a critical intellect, and the sense of purpose that accompanies compassionate service to the world.
