The University of California Los Angeles plans to open the world’s first Kindness Institute, a research
center targeting the impacts of kindness on everyday citizens’ health and longevity.

The school received $20 million in funding from the Bedari Foundation in the hopes that the
organization will be able to explore the different aspects of kindness and translate those consequences into real-world practice. The project will highlight the importance of both mental and physical health in maintaining a humane society. The various tools will include programs, lectures, media outreach, and an app called UCLA
Mindful.

The importance of the institute’s construction has been emphasized by many as much need in today’s violently changing society. Overall, the goal of the group will remain to overcome conflict and cruelty.
