The Center for Investigating Healthy Minds (CIHM), at the Waisman Center, UW-Madison was recently awarded a three-year, $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to continue building mindfulness research in education.
CIHM is partnering with the Madison Metropolitan School District to bring the practice of mindfulness into classrooms to help students improve their academic performance, nurture their emotional well-being, and bolster their behavior.
