Public Programs Overview
"Meridian University is a gift to this moment in our history. The rare breadth of the intellectual journeys it offers, and its exquisite attention to the ripening of the whole person, set a stunning example for graduate studies in the time of the Great Turning. It grows new and needed disciplines of consciousness, as well as motivation to engage in the transformation of culture."
– Joanna Macy, Author of Coming Back to Life
Meridian seeks to support continuing education by offering public programs in addition to its degree programs. These community programs—formatted as seminars, experiential workshops, and professional programs—are taught by Meridian faculty and guest presenters. Certain programs are approved for Continuing Education Credits (CE Credits) for MFT and LCSW licenses as well MCEP. Like the curriculum in our degree programs, the public programs draw on: spiritual traditions, somatic practices, creative arts, mythology, indigenous wisdom, literary and poetic imagination, deep ecology, mystical philosophy, cultural history, and social critique.
Meridian University is an approved provider to offer continuing education for MFT's and LCSW'S by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (Provider #PCE 1391), an approved provider to offer continuing education for RN's and LVN's by the California Board of Registered Nursing (Provider #14996), and approved by the California Psychological Association Office of Professional Development (#MER020) to sponsor continuing professional education for psychologists in California. Specified Meridian public program workshops and seminars meet the qualifications for CE credit for California MFT's, LCSW's, RN, LVN's, and Psychologists as required by the BBS, BRN and MCEP.
