My experience with Viridis Graduate Institute has been the most fulfilling educational experience of my life thus far! I was seeking a program that would support my understanding of humans as ecological creatures, and the school’s approach delivers on that and beyond. VGI successfully combines the convenience of online education with a level of regard for each student and faculty that engenders a deep sense of community


My experience at Viridis Graduate School was transformative in many ways.  I am leaving as a more developed researcher and scholar and have undergone a psychological transformation with a major change in thought patterns and values while working on my Doctoral Capstone project.  I was allowed to create a unique and meaningful project that pushed the boundaries of traditional research into arts-based research and deep mapping protocols. As I continue my work as an Ecopsychologist and Artist, I will always be indebted to Viridis Graduate Institute for allowing and supporting my explorations into this pioneering research approach.
