COVID-19 Update from the Program

For Fall 2020, in response to the ongoing pandemic and the important need to reduce the spread of the infection, CIIS has announced that all Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness (PCC) classes will be conducted virtually. This applies to both our online and our residential programs. In both cases, there will be no on-campus meetings. The situation for Spring is currently undecided. These measures are being undertaken by PCC and CIIS in response to state and local guidelines, San Francisco regulations, and a real concern to consider the health of all within our community, including those who may be especially vulnerable.    
As those who have taken our online courses already know, the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program has been building a wonderful online community and a culture of rich online learning for a number of years now and we’re grateful to have those things in place as we confront the challenges of our current moment. We are also actively instituting for new ways for faculty, students, and alumni to share work with one another and to collaborate through co-curricular online symposia, workshops, the PCC Forum, and other such options

Fall 2020 cycle is closed. The Spring 2021 cycle is opening 09/15/2020.

The Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program is dedicated to re-imagining the human species as a mutually enhancing member of the Earth community.

Our program attracts intellectually engaged individuals who are in varying degrees dismayed by what they see happening in modern societies and who are striving to find meaningful ways to develop their gifts to serve the future of the world.

The program supports those called to meet the earth community's unprecedented evolutionary challenge by offering a rigorous and supportive learning community in which students find their voice and vision as leaders.
