As part of our mission to improve the flourishing of OU students and to advance the science of virtue, we manage activities and programs in four main areas.
This area includes programs that introduce OU freshmen to the OU virtues, help them reflect on how the virtues apply to their own lives as students and young citizens, and encourage them to cultivate the virtues within themselves. Learn more
In addition to the research on virtue and flourishing produced by our Leadership Team, we also fund Postdoctoral Fellows and Dissertation Fellows, and we host academic conferences on virtue-related topics. Learn more
