Making happiness a campus theme

Partners will have access to a series of resources designed to support first-year reading and orientation programs, as well as other campus-wide reading with content based on Arthur’s bestselling books Build the Life You Want, co-authored with Oprah Winfrey, and From Strength to Strength. These books contain the highest-quality academic research across disciplines from social psychology to neuroscience, but are written for general audiences, and are thus ideal for students at all levels and from diverse backgrounds. Resources include:

  • Deep bulk discounts on book purchases for student participants

  • A Toolkit with facilitation guides, sample lesson plans, and exercises

  • Guidance on various types of small-group workshops and interactive learning methods

  • Promotional assets for social media and other channels

  • Online teaching tools including surveys and data collection methods that diagnose and measure students’ happiness and wellbeing
