Description

Penn State SELF (Student Engagement, Learning, and Flourishing) is an intensive study of the health and well-being of a key population: Penn State undergraduate students across the Commonwealth. The data, to include 21 daily assessments and DNA, will serve as a resource for Penn State researchers studying young adult flourishing and provide the University with information that could enhance student experiences. This project is funded as part of Penn State's Strategic Initiative Funding program, with co-sponsorship from the Social Science Research Institute and the Huck Institutes for the Life Sciences.
