Parent Partners Network

OU Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing


The mission of the Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing is to advance the science of virtue and to promote the flourishing of OU Students and all Oklahomans.

Parental influences, as Aristotle and Confucius so rightly thought, are crucial for the development of virtue in children. Mindful of this, they are developing a Partner Parents program meant to serve Oklahoma parents by offering four main types of resources on virtue development.

The Institute is launching programs for students and faculty in the OU community, and also for Oklahoma leaders in business, education, the civic community, and parents. Join their email list and connect with them on social media to stay informed of upcoming events and opportunities.
