Success-Failure Project


The Success-Failure Project encourages students and others in the University community to grapple with questions like:

  • Who defines what constitutes success and failure in my life?

  • What makes me feel fulfilled and what do I define as a success?

  • What am I working for?  Who am I working for?

  • Where do my beliefs about success and failure come from?

  • What does it mean to be responsible for, to learn from, or just to suffer, both my successes and my failures?

  • What factors and feelings play a role in success and failure?  What about ambition, creativity, perfectionism, luck, joy, obligation, competition, integrity, fear, talent, and collaboration?

  • What does it mean to be a good, successful, even excellent student and human being?
