    School Overview

    In 1974, Naropa Institute, which would later become Naropa University, was founded. Located in Boulder, Colorado, Naropa is a private, not-for-profit university. The universities founder, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, was born in Tibet and created Naropa with the goal to create a university that would combine contemplative studies with traditional Western scholastic and artistic disciplines. Today, Naropa University is a recognized leader in contemplative education and teaches professional and personal growth, intellectual development, and contemplative practice through its undergraduate and graduate programs. Through these teachings, Naropa strives to educate its students’ minds, but students as a whole. This is done by cultivating academic excellence and contemplative insight in order to infuse knowledge with wisdom. Naropa University is the first fully accredited Buddhist-inspired University in the United States.

    Naropa offers residential bachelor's and master's degree programs in liberal arts subjects, as well as low-residency graduate-level degree programs.
