Contemplative Practices

Alverno College

    Contemplative Practices

    At Alverno, we actively promote a personal plan for mindful wellbeing. Our intention is to offer practical experience of contemplative techniques and thoughtful development of curriculum.

    The phrase in Sanctitate et Doctrina – in holiness and learning – is incorporated into the Alverno College seal and represents the College’s commitment to the total person in wholeness and health.  Here at Alverno College, we strive to be a campus that supports and promotes wellness because it builds a happier, more productive and satisfied campus community.
