Students in Naropa’s Resilient Leadership graduate program learn to identify systems that separate us from the world, locking us in destructive cycles. They unravel habits and learn to rebuild and retool new, environmentally just patterns, graduating empowered and ready to help create a responsible future. Students choose between two area tracks—Sustainable Systems or Climate Justice—with the bulk of the coursework shared between both pathways.

Through the intensive study of living systems theory, ecopsychology, sustainability, climate justice, human rights, environmental policy, nonprofit management, entrepreneurship, and mindfulness, students develop leadership skills that prepare them to become a compassionate advocate for a healthier, more viable world.
