Colleges and universities utilize multiple strategies to increase student success. These strategies are especially important in the current era as students are entering higher education with additional responsibilities and stressors that must be addressed for students to persist and graduate. One such strategy that higher education institutions should consider to promote student success and contend with students’ additional stressors is the teaching of contemplative practices.

This poster will present the preliminary results of a qualitative research study that explores the connection between students’ (N=10) enrollment in a mindfulness studies course and their utilization of contemplative practices both inside and outside the classroom with a focus on their academic success. Using a general inductive method, the data suggests that students’ utilization of mindfulness behaviors assisted with their academic functioning, confidence, and empathy. Implications for research and practice will be presented.
