Creating a Compassionate Campus: A Mindful Path to Equity at RCTC
Rochester Community and Technical College
Rochester Community and Technical College (RCTC) is a member of the Charter for Compassion, an organization that works with cities to identify issues of concern that make their communities uncomfortable places in which to live. To support this work, RCTC undertook mindfulness in equity work pioneered by Minneapolis College. Through the course of academic year 2019, students and employees on the RCTC campus were offered trainings and events around mindfulness practices. These trainings and events helped them learn how to apply mindfulness practices within an equity and compassion framework.
