The Center for Renewal and Wholeness in Higher Education (CRWHE) prepares individuals to facilitate professional development programs in renewal and wholeness for faculty and staff in their college or university. With their institution’s support, facilitation teams engage in a preparation program that includes a week-long retreat, the opportunity to engage in an annual, nation-wide and/or regional Gathering of facilitators, and ongoing mentoring by CRWHE staff and consultants.

CRWHE has prepared facilitators in more than 45 colleges and universities throughout the United States. Their work is informed by the teaching and writing of Parker J. Palmer and others and is enhanced by a number of concepts and processes, such as Servant Leadership, Appreciative Inquiry, Dialogue, and Relationship-Centered Care.


The mission of the Center is to enable colleges to create transformative communities of faculty, staff, administrators, trustees, community partners, and students. The Center strives to foster communities of the heart by working with colleges committed to supporting individual and institutional formation.

The Center supports the renewal of individuals and institutions by preparing teams of formation facilitators to create "circles of trust" as articulated by Parker J. Palmer in The Courage to Teach, Let Your Life Speak, and A Hidden Wholeness.
