What is Eudaimonia?
Aristotle distinguished hedonia, the brief, fleeting happiness derived from immediate satisfaction of drives, from eudaimonia, the sustained happiness that comes from living a life rich in purpose and meaning. Core concepts of Eudaimonia include self-acceptance, positive relations with others, autonomy, mastery of one’s environment, purpose in life, and personal growth.
The UCLA HCI Eudaimonia Award is an annual recognition award given to a member of the UCLA community past or present who exemplifies a life full of purpose and meaning. The 2018 Eudaimonia Award recipient will be honored at a special UCLA event this Spring.
All members of the UCLA community- including alumni, students, staff, and faculty- are eligible for nomination. Nominations may be made posthumously. You may not nominate yourself for the Eudaimonia Award. Nominations are open till Friday, December 7th.
