Student Flourishing Initiative-Platform Development

The Student Flourishing Portal is a digital platform of vast and diverse content exploring student flourishing in theory and practice to support curricular, co-curricular, and research activities enhancing student lives, skills, experiences, and well-being. It will enable faculty, student affairs professionals, university leaders, students, and the public to incorporate approaches from the sciences, arts, and humanities, and powerful experiential practices that develop students’ values, understanding, capacities, and well-being. This will include terms, texts, bibliographies, recorded lectures, guided practices, interactive exercises, art, music, maps, data and images visualizations, quotations, interviews with renowned thinkers in the field, case studies, and culturally diverse studies. This would build upon preliminary content generated by UVA, along with the University of Wisconsin and Penn State, to create a large-scale academic course and research program focused on first years.
