Brooke Rice

Graduate Academic Advisor
Graduate Academic Advising

Brooke (she/her) became a firm believer in contemplative education after seeing the benefits first hand while attending Naropa for her Masters of Arts in Religious Studies. Brooke believes that this transformative, immersive, deeply meaningful type of experiential learning is a powerful tool that will aid students during their educational endeavors, and also throughout their lives.
Brooke is a lifelong learner, and she sought out as many experiences as possible, attending many schools as an undergrad over the course of 11 years. She graduated from the University of Wyoming with two degrees before finding her home near Boulder, and deciding to complete her journey in higher education at Naropa. Brooke likes to spend her free time playing miniature wargames and cooperative board games, painting models, reading, watching horror films, walking with her dog, and drinking coffee with friends.
