The Awakened Campus Global Initiative

Columbia University Spirituality, Mind, Body Institute, the European SPES Institute, Leuven, and the Business Ethics Center of Corvinus University of Budapest organize an international online conference on The Awakened Campus Global Initiative in November 29-30, 2022.

The aim of the conference is to create a collaborative global network of higher education institutions to integrate spirituality in their activities. The overall goal is to help the formation of spiritual awareness of students, faculty and university leaders through support of spirituality in the student faculty and student advisor relationship, campus culture, mission, shared relational values, residential programs, and range of pedagogy. The Awakened Campus Global Initiative Conference mainly but not exclusively focuses on teachers education, medical education, and business education. So we are looking for establishing partnership with teachers colleges, medical schools, and business schools as well as with alternative institutions of higher learning.

Invited speakers from USA, Europe, and India will present their experience and best practices in integrating spirituality in higher education and help to co-create projects with participating institutions in curriculum, research, and extra-curriculum development areas, and facilitate the collaboration of faculty and university leaders to promote spiritual awareness in higher education and professional practices.
