JOCI promotes the understanding, development, and application of contemplative and introspective methods in order to serve a vision of higher education as an opportunity for cultivating personal and social awareness and an exploration of meaning, purpose and values. The development of a critical first-person perspective allows students to examine their own experience in relationship to the material they study, transforming their understanding of how their learning can affect their actions in the world.
