Student Scholarship Recognition Day (SSRD) was created by the late CLA Dean Larry Cress. The main goal was to provide an avenue for Willamette students to share their exemplary work with their peers, educators, friends, and family. Another goal was to include the papers and projects presented during in a digital archive of student work completed at Willamette. Visit the SSRD web site.

Is happiness found through an external focus on accomplishing goals in the
material world? Or is happiness fashioned through an internal focus on
performing one’s duty according to the moral standards of one’s community
(religious or secular)? Might happiness (eudaimonia) consist in taking
personal responsibility for one’s creative capacity to accomplish things
that nature cannot accomplish on its own? Might viewing virtue in terms
of the origins of one’s creativity rather than the external consequences
of one’s actions lead to an understanding of virtue that allows us to be
human and happy?
