Abstract: There are unique resource challenges that shape the environment of contemplative advocates who work in community colleges. Since community colleges are often smaller campuses that are part of a larger state-funded system, it may not be appropriate to assess the “success” of contemplative initiatives at a community college by the same standards used private baccalaureate institutions. Community colleges face the global and political challenges of our time in an immediate way, raising a core question that we will explore in this webinar: How can faculty and administrators at community colleges face the swiftly changing environment with compassion?
