"We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education."
– Martin Luther King, Jr.

To flourish means to live well, to thrive. We believe that humans flourish when they develop to their fullest potential as rational and moral creatures living in healthy communities.
We offer a variety of funding opportunities, from postdoctoral and dissertation fellowships to OU course development stipends.
