Center for Compassion Studies

The Center for Compassion Studies was established to encourage investigation of the impact of compassion and contemplative practices on individual, group and environmental well-being, as well as to promote the availability of education and training in the cultivation of compassion. The first of its kind in the Southwest, the University of Arizona's Center for Compassion Studies joins several institutions of higher education in the pursuit of understanding the impact of the intentional cultivation of compassion,and expanding the availability of evidence-based methods and techniques for those interested in this form of contemplative practice.
