Studying and Sharing the Science of a Meaningful Life

gglogo copy 2

The Greater Good Science Center studies the psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of well-being, and teaches skills that foster a thriving, resilient, and compassionate society.

Independently based at the University of California, Berkeley, the GGSC is unique in its commitment to both science and practice: we sponsor ground-breaking scientific research into social and emotional well-being, and we help people apply this research to their personal and professional lives through online journalism, events, and institutes.

Since 2001, we have been at the forefront of a new scientific movement to explore the roots of happy and compassionate individuals, strong social bonds, and altruistic behavior—the science of a meaningful life. With over a million members of our online community, we are among the leaders in our field in our award-winning efforts to translate and disseminate this science to the public.
