Mission & Vision


U of Earth Mission:

To help create a world that works for all, where the human community, the natural world and the divine worlds go forward as one sacred community. 



U of Earth Vision:

"The central mission of our times is the reinvention of the human; at the species level."
~Thomas Berry; Cultural Historian & Theologian

We at University of Earth join many others in claiming that we are once again at a juncture in history when humanity is required to reinvent itself. With that, University of Earth provides educational programs for the graceful transition from our "Industrial Growth" anthropocentric society to an ecocentric society. 

U of Earth is honored to serve as a collaborative institution for individuals and other organizations that share our mission and vision where they can offer their unique gifts to our world in need.

Educational Programs:

Our educational programs are open to the general public and are currently offered in two primary formats; workshops and online courses.

All degree and certification programs at University of Earth are designed to help students discover their true life purpose and gifts, fulfill their greater human potentials, and develop a skill set that will give them the best possible opportunity to create a sustainable career.

Our Continuing Education (CEU) workshops are intended to encourage professionals in many fields to incorporate ecocentric perspectives into their particular fields. 

Our quarterly gatherings serve as the forum for our students, mentors and general public to come together in face to face nature-based workshops and celebrations.

EcoHamlet Campuses:

While our online curriculums can be completed right where you live, University of Earth's extended vision and mission is to create a series of eco-spiritual residential educational centers over time for the purpose of creating a culture that honors and integrates nature and society.

To serve this end, University of Earth embraces a philosophy of kinship and earth membership in the "Family of All Things. Where humans are dedicated to fulfilling their greater human potentials, discovering their true life purpose and providing particular services that facilitate the reinvention of society and the creation of life enhancing sustainable communities.

With the development of one  EcoHamlet campus currently underway in California, our residential educational centers will also serve as EcoRetreat centers where people can get away for study and healing, rest and relaxation and enjoy a more intimate relationship with nature.
