The School of Consciousness and Transformation (SCT) strives to embody spirit, intellect, and wisdom through the arts, humanities, and social sciences.

SCT approaches the idea of integral education in two ways. First, SCT is distinct among liberal arts graduate schools in recognizing that scholarship should involve attention to profound issues of ultimate or essential concern. For this reason, SCT programs aim at social and personal transformation in service to individuals, communities, and the Earth. This vision is enacted through an integral pedagogy that sees means and ends as inseparable. Teaching and learning are not steps to transformation but are transformative processes themselves.

Second, SCT is committed to pedagogical and scholarly work that includes multiple ways of being, knowing, and acting. Accordingly, SCT programs embrace interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and integral approaches to knowledge and seek to include a plurality of methodological and social perspectives. Students graduate from the School of Consciousness and Transformation with a deepened sense of vocation, a rigorous approach to critical scholarship, and the ability to creatively engage their chosen fields.
