UK hosts Contemplative Practices for High Education Conference

The 11th Annual Conference on Contemplative Practices in Higher Education will take place at UK from February 29-March 2 on the UK Campus.
Scholars, students, and practitioners will be making presentations to show how a range of contemplative pedagogical approaches can help students develop attentional stability, which is the ground for self-awareness and emotional intelligence—three qualities that contribute to empathy and compassion.
The Conference is convened by C-HEARTS, the Contemplative Higher Education Alliance for Research, Teaching, and Service. C-HEARTS' mission is to build and sustain an inclusive global community dedicated to cultivating contemplative practices within higher education by supporting research, integrating pedagogical techniques, and cultivating an alliance in service to self and others.
Presenters and performers include Frank X Walker, professor of English and African American and Africana Studies, singer Erica Gabriel, and Lance Brunner, associate professor of musicology and ethnomusicology.
The Conference is sponsored by the College of Fine Arts and the School of Music plus a range of other units across the University including the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), the Lewis Honors College, Gatton College of Business and Economics, Stanley and Karen Pigman College of Engineering, Office of the Vice President for Research, and UK Human Resources — Health and Wellness.
