In the multicultural context, this study explored relationships and compared differences among goal setting, mindful learning, volition, and flourishing of overseas Chinese students and local students. In total, 826 college students were recruited from Taiwan’s universities and colleges, including 559 overseas Chinese students and 267 local students. Data were collected and analyzed using description statistics, t test, multivariate analysis of variance, and structural equation modeling. The results demonstrated that: (1) The mediator effects of local and overseas Chinese students’ mindful learning and volition on the route from goal setting to flourishing exhibited no significant effects by volition on flourishing. (2) For local students, volition played a full mediator role between goal setting and flourishing, but for overseas Chinese students, volition did not play a mediator role. (3) The scores of local students and Malaysian overseas Chinese students for goal acceptance, conscious attention control, implicit attention control, self-determination, positive emotions, and competent requirements were significantly higher than those of Hong Kongese and Macanese overseas Chinese students. Finally, based on the results and findings, several implications and concrete suggestions for higher education and future research were proposed.

Keywords:flourishing, goal setting, mindful learning, volition
