California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) is a private institution of higher education founded in 1968 and based in San Francisco, California. It currently operates in two locations just south of the Civic Center district. CIIS has a total of 1,400 students and 72 core faculty members.
The Institute consists of three schools: the School of Professional Psychology & Health, the School of Consciousness and Transformation (mainly humanities subjects), and the School of Undergraduate Studies. Many courses combine mainstream academic curriculum with a spiritual orientation, including influences from a broad spectrum of mystical or esoteric traditions. Although the Institute has no official spiritual path, some of its historical roots lie among followers of the Bengali sage Sri Aurobindo.
