Pratt Institute’s Mindfulness Initiatives in Student Affairs (MISA) committee is a story about campus culture shift. We will share and offer practices, discuss how campus culture changes through mindfulness and contemplative practices, and how many voices can create a road map for culture change. Our committee brings together 10 departments in the division of Student Affairs to learn mindfulness and contemplative practices and integrate practice and theory throughout the university. This work includes personal practice training, meetings and dialogue, certifications in group facilitation, and commitment to awareness and inquiry. In its third year, MISA will include an all staff training, faculty training, and contemplative pedagogy dialogues with the CTL. Attention was given to principles of organizational change and how contemplative inquiry can guide change efforts at all different levels of the institution has led to the acceptance of this culture shift from this grassroots effort.
