Flourish Penn State

Pennsylvania State University

Flourish Penn State provides a campus environment where students can explore and experience flourishing and develop knowledge, skills, and values leading to a lifetime of flourishing.

A key element of Flourish Penn State will be to provide opportunities for students to connect with the natural world.  We aim to provide programming for students to experience mindfulness and meditation in nature and to help them understand how experiences in nature can contribute to their overall mental and physical well-being. We also aim to help students explore the connection between humans and the natural world while participating in environmental conservation. As part of this initiative, we hope to develop a Nature Rx program that is incorporated into the electronic medical record.
