Excerpt from a Student Letter to the Academic Council Urging the Passing of the Minor:

“Studying consciousness is, at the very least, eye-opening, and has the power to transform and enlighten; to cultivate an unending fascination with the world in which we live. This is our hope for the students at UWB: that, through their experiences at the University, they continue to find inspiration in the things they learn, and that they may translate this awe into their everyday lives.

There is a biological advantage to being awestruck. Awe is that wonderful sense of curiosity and excitement at what we - individually and collectively - are a part of. Awe spurs us to learn more, discover, and move forward with hope; it enhances our connection to the world, helping us find meaning and belonging within it... Consciousness studies ignited us with passion and enthusiasm that lets us look toward the future with optimism and confidence, and we would like nothing better than for others to feel as alive as we do now.”

-Students of the Consciousness Program, April 2013


Meet the Students

Students are the hearts, minds, and life-force of the Consciousness Program. In the absence of their unique passions, gifts, eagerness to explore unchartered territory and championing support of the program, Consciousness at UW Bothell would not exist. Every accomplishment - from the passing of the Minor, founding of the Consciousness Club, to organizing this campaign - is the result of students who have been touched by Consciousness in deeply personal, yet profoundly collective ways. In the stories below, meet just a handful of the remarkable students who have been a part of the program to learn about their experiences. They are the New Generation of scholars, scientists, and leaders the world needs, and they are only the beginning.
