CIIS Public Programs

CIIS Public Programs produces conversations, workshops, and a podcast for people who are curious about themselves and the world. Our programs further personal and social transformation by bringing together the diverse voices of visionaries, artists, change-makers, and scholars to share compelling experiences, offer new perspectives, and expand creative horizons. Public Programs enhances and reflects the academic mission of our nonprofit university home in San Francisco—California Institute of Integral Studies
