Diversity at Naropa University

Naropa University draws on the vital insights of the world's wisdom traditions and is simultaneously Buddhist-inspired, ecumenical, and nonsectarian. A commitment to diversity flows from these overarching values and is carried forward throughout the institution, informing a student's course of study and encouraging openness, understanding, and cultural competence. Through a contemplative education, Naropa students seek compassionate and active means for addressing the essential issues of diversity and difference.

Naropa students explore systems of power and privilege in relationship to race, class, gender, ethnicity, disability, age, sexuality, nationality, and religion.
