Niswarth: Connecting Goodness + Knowledge + Action + Reflection
The Niswarth program brings together people and ideas, focuses on multiple perspectives, works to understand context, and digs into the complexity of pressing issues within communities. In an out of context environment, we invite students to examine the connections between our external views of the wider world and our internal reactions and reflections. While making connections, we emphasize the practice of humility and patience, questioning our assumptions and habits, recognizing our shared humanity, and examining our obligations of empathy and understanding towards others. As we connect knowledge, goodness, action and reflection in a continuous cycle, we gain a sense of purpose and a sense of connection with those around us.
