Karin Meyers will accompany Smith students in the Tibetan Studies in India Program. She will provide academic support while in India and facilitate in-country travel arrangements.

Meyers was associate professor at Kathmandu University’s Centre for Buddhist Studies from 2011–18, where she also served as director of the master’s program in Buddhist studies. Her work focuses on Buddhist psychology, ethics and contemplative systems; Buddhism and free will; and topics in Buddhist studies that occupy the borderlands of religion and philosophy.

She is a graduate of Hampshire College and a student on the first Tibetan Studies in India program years ago.
