DRBU is a small private school dedicated to liberal education in the broad Buddhist tradition—a tradition characterized by knowledge in the arts and sciences, self-cultivation, and the pursuit of wisdom.
“Coming to know about DRBU makes me wish I could go back fifty years to the beginning of my teaching career and teach here.”
– Huston Smith, Professor Emeritus at Syracuse University and author of The World's Religions.
“This is possibly the best liberal arts program I know of.”
– Henry Rosemont, Jr. Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at St. Mary's College of Maryland, and Visiting Scholar of Religious Studies at Brown University.
At DRBU, students learn directly through the great books of Western, Eastern, and Buddhist thought. The texts come to life in engaging, discussion-based seminars.
