Contemplative Education Program Fair

Do you have a contemplative education program, center, or initiative on your campus that you would like to promote to fellow participants (faculty, staff, students) at our Annual Conference?

We’ve created this opportunity (during our conference Poster Session) to help spread awareness of degree and certificate programs, organizations, and centers dedicated to contemplative practices in higher education. Table space is first-come, first-served, and can be requested through Friday, September 30th. 10/1/16: The request period has now closed.
