Hirshberg Joins Mind & Life Think Tank at Brown University

Dan Hirshberg, assistant professor of religion, participated in a “Think Tank” on Contemplative Studies programs at Brown University, which was sponsored by the Mind & Life Institute. Gathering leaders in the field from across the country, as well as faculty aspiring to introduce new programs, the Think Tank surveyed the current state of this burgeoning field theoretically, practically, and pedagogically, and brainstormed its next steps.

Launched in 2016 by Professors David Ambuel, Dan Hirshberg and Angela Pitts, UMW’s Contemplative Studies minor remains one of very few fully established CS programs in the world.
