Abstract: (Show)
A contemplative approach to higher education is receiving increased attention and application in the classroom. Applying contemplative practices to administration, however, has received little attention in the literature. This case study offers a unique look at Naropa University and its implementation of contemplative administration. Findings indicate that incorporating contemplative practices into administrative life has benefits to faculty and staff members including an appreciation of being able to bring their personal lives into the workplace in a safe and supportive way and a strengthened commitment to the University's mission.
