COVID-19 Update from the Program

The Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program will continue to hold all classes online and virtually through Summer 2021 semester, which means we will not hold any on-campus meetings. PCC and CIIS will continue to monitor the situation daily and will follow current medical guidelines to ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff. In PCC we feel especially fortunate to have experienced faculty who work well in the online and virtual modalities, and we look forward to working with you as you join our vibrant community. We will keep everyone apprised of our plans via the CIIS website/Canvas Cafe. If you have any questions, please contact our Program Coordinator.
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

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.
