Dear Saybrook Community:
Our university has always been made stronger by forging well thought out partnerships with other institutions.

Saybrook University is proud to announce that it is sponsoring a film on the life and work of its most noted professor, Dr. Stanley Krippner.

It’s graduation season at Saybrook University! This year Saybrook is graduating nearly 100 students in commencement ceremonies in Seattle and San Francisco celebrating new scholars in the fields of psychology, mind-body medicine, organizational systems, and human science.
You like us, you really like us!

Palmer will spark a community conversation based on his latest book, Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit.

We live in a time when any human emotion is seen as “treatable” by drugs; a time when organizations are desperately searching for ways to better organize and sustain communities; a time when the potential of new technologies for social transformation seems boundless, but is so far untested.
We live in a time when the world needs humanistic psychologists, organizational change agents, and new medicine. Now more than ever.
After 40 years, Saybrook University remains the intellectual home of humanistic scholarship. But are we doing enough?
