The Art & Science of Virtue

In 2015, philosopher Nancy Snow was recruited from Marquette University to the University of Oklahoma to do one thing, one really big visionary thing — teach Oklahomans and Oklahoma students about the importance of a virtuous life as a means to human happiness. Under her watch and using a combination of measurement, definition, research, and outreach, the disciplines of philosophy, psychology, and education have fluidly merged at OU’s Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing. Today, in the land of the free and home of the brave, Nancy Snow advances the cultivation of virtue and hope, universal subjects that never grow old.
