Conference sessions are led by scholars, researchers, students and practitioners that demonstrate and investigate how contemplative practices are being used in higher education to build more just and humane relationships and institutions and will include: research presentations, experiential workshops, contemplative practice sessions, performances, roundtable conversations and panel discussions.

A poster session allows colleagues to connect across many disciplines, as well as plenary sessions, breakout groups, and other social settings for interpersonal exchange.
