Syracuse University’s Contemplative Collaborative supports students, faculty, and staff who engage in contemplative practices, as well as teaching strategies, scholarly research, and discourse surrounding these practices, with the goal of cultivating focused attention in ways that foster insight and deepen understanding of complex issues. The Contemplative Collaborative bridges student life and academic life through a community of faculty, staff, administrators, and students with shared interests in mindfulness and contemplative practices that embody engaged learning, a mindful academy, and compassionate society.
The Contemplative Collaborative provides a foundation on which to build signature SU academic and co-curricular contemplative programming with strong appeal to students. This includes the creation of the Mindfulness and Contemplative Studies minor.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration continues to be the largest university-sponsored event in the nation to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King.
Each year, a dedicated legion of volunteers creates a memorable tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. King, giving us the opportunity to find new meaning in his words and inspiration in his work.
The Moral Injury Project at Syracuse University has established a mission to provide a forum to explore the implications of moral injury as it relates to individuals seeking healing and integration of trauma and how moral injury impacts our society. Moral injury is the damage done to one’s conscience or moral compass when that person perpetrates, witnesses, or fails to prevent acts that transgress one’s own moral beliefs, values, or ethical codes of conduct.
