The Heart of Higher Education
A Call to Renewal
The Heart of Higher Education is an invitation to everyone who cares about the academy to revisit its roots and help reclaim its highest calling.

Palmer, best-selling author of The Courage to Teach and founder of the Center for Courage & Renewal, and Arthur Zajonc, professor of physics and director of the Center for ContemplativeMind in Society, advocate a holistic approach to teaching and learning that honors the whole human beingmind, heart, and spirit. The Heart of Higher Education offers a rich interplay of analysis, theory, and action options and models to help colleges and universities become places that awaken the deepest potential in students, faculty, and staff. The authors propose an approach to educational renewal grounded in collegiality and conversation.
The Heart of Higher Education is for all who are new to the field of integrative education, all who want to deepen their understanding of its challenges and prospects, and all who want to practice and promote this vital approach to teaching and learning on their campuses.
