In 1974 Tibetan scholar Chogyam Trungpa established the Naropa Institute as a liberal arts college concentrating on contemplative studies. That same year Allen Ginsberg and Ann Waldman opened the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poets at the institute. Accredited in 1986, the institute draws students from around the world. Focusing on social science, humanities and creative arts, the college offers B.A., M.A., and M.F.A. degree programs. Periodic public lectures from prominent speakers cover topics from art therapy to balancing science and religion in everyday life.
