Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing releases short film

The University of Oklahoma's Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing, founded and directed by moral philosopher Dr. Nancy Snow, recently released a short documentary film. The movie titled "Right behind the rain" explores the work done at the Institute to elicit change in Oklahoma City through youth character education of 9 core virtues including open-mindedness, love of learning, intellectual humility, self-regulation, perseverance, honesty, civility, fairness, and compassion. The film highlights their community engagement with a local high school, a gang prevention program, their University spring break camp called Camp Impact, and a joint conference hosted by the Institute along with the organization SALLT. The film poses the question of whether character education can help to combat poverty, homelessness, and inequality.
