The Phil Hanni Student Scholar Program

Phil HanniPhilip Hanni married his passions for social justice, pacifism and equal rights to his dual careers of the ministry and education through his work in the campus ministry. He was fortunate enough to have the best of both worlds. He died in Salem on March 21, 2013 at age 80.

Phil was Chaplain at Willamette University from 1973 until 1985. He also served as an assistant professor and Director of Church-University Relations at Willamette, as well as the Chairman of the Atkinson Speaker Committee. After leaving Willamette he served churches in Milton-Freewater and Weston, OR;  Caldwell, ID; and Lebanon, OR until his retirement in 1997.

Phil and Erin Hanni joined ICL in 1997. Phil was Curriculum Director from 2000 until 2005. Phil and Erin contributed to ICL and the University in many important and memorable ways.

In 2013 the Institute for Continued Learning decided to honor Phil’s many contributions to both the University and ICL by establishing the Phil Hanni Student Scholar Program. This program was established to honor those outstanding students at Willamette who were so much in Phil’s thoughts throughout his career.

To this end ICL takes great pleasure presenting this award each year to the six top student scholars as judged by a panel of Willamette faculty and ICL members.

We are pleased to invite Phil’s wife Erin to present these awards.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and the Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

ICL member Pat Hoffman has drawn my attention to an excellent video on the internet on what to do if you encounter someone who has collapsed. The URL (web site address) is:

The video advises that the first thing to do is to call 911. That's correct off campus, but on campus, you should call Campus Safety at 503-370-6911 (note the 911 after the "370-6..."). They will provide immediate assistance. They carry emergency equipment, including an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). There are also AEDs in Ford Hall and in Goudy Commons (see below).

After 911 (or Campus Safety) has been called, the video describes the correct, currently accepted resuscitation procedure. 

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Locations:

  • Campus Safety Office
  • Campus Safety Vehicle
  • Ford Hall, 1st floor, on southeast wall near east doors
  • Goudy Commons, main dining room, near tray return
  • Kaneko Commons: A Wing, just outside the Atrium
  • Law School, outside Student Services Center, room 202
  • McCulloch Stadium: men's locker room
  • Oregon Civic Justice Center: State Street side, at reception desk
  • Sparks Center: main lobby, east wall
  • University Center, inside north entrance

I suggest ICL members view the above video at the beginning of every semester, as well as print this list of AED locations and carry a copy in purse or wallet. Given the average age of our members, this information could be life-saving.
