  • Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm

This year we are excited to partner with organizations and departments across campus to feature the experiences and stories of our students. As we think about student success and our teaching, it is critical that we consider our students and their perspectives. Through this series we strive to amplify the voices of our students and provide an opportunity for dialogue as we seek to clarify student expectations and experiences so that we might all achieve success in the classroom.    

In this opening session, we will hear from incoming first year students who navigated their final years of high school during the pandemic as well as college students who have only experienced WKU during the pandemic. We will visit with these students about their expectations, how their first couple of weeks have gone and what faculty and staff can do to help them transition to college and a “normal” college setting.  

If you have questions you would like to pose to our students, please submit those prior to the session by emailing micah.logan@wku.edu.  

A Zoom link will be sent out prior to the webinar.

Marshman sees her painting practice as a constructive communion with self and spirit much akin to journaling. “The title of this exhibition, Inner(re)visions, relates not just to my relationship with my imagination, but what results in me centering my own gaze…while navigating externally constructed realities.” Ebony earned her BFA in Painting from WKU in 2013 and M.Ed. in Montessori Education from Loyola University in 2016 and currently lives and works in Washington, D.C.

9/11 20th Anniversary Photo Exhibit to feature WKU student and faculty work from 2001 terrorist attack

It was September 11, 2001. Within a few hours after the World Trade Center towers fell and took a piece of America’s heart with them, Western Kentucky University photojournalism students packed their cars with photography gear and headed north in search of answers. These students were not sure what they would find in New York, they just knew they had to be there. By the week’s end, two faculty had joined them.

What they found was not just a story about smoldering buildings and twisted metal. They found stories about the people who worked in these buildings, the rescuers trying to save them, and the family and friends waiting to hear about the fate of their loved ones. By the following week, the WKU team was back at school with thousands of photographs and one goal: to share their stories with as many people as they could.

Twenty years later their images still resonate with us, even haunt us. We are reminded of the profound emotional toll September 11, 2001, had on our country. The images represent despair, but also hope and resilience.

On September 10, 2021, Ridley and Hull Wealth Management Group of Stifel, and The WKU School of Media will host an open house from noon to 4 p.m. at the Pushin Building at 400 E. Main St., Suite 100 in Bowling Green. Remarks will be at 1 p.m.

The exhibit of 28 images will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays through the month of September.

For more information about the event or exhibit contact Tim Broekema, Professor of Photojournalism, (270) 745-3005; or Ben Ridley, (270) 792-7955.

As we all continue to strive to provide our students with diverse, equitable and inclusive instruction, we invite you to join us for a discussion of Teaching with Transparency. The goal of Teaching with Transparency is to help students understand how and why they are learning course content in particular ways, and extensive research provided through the Transparency in Learning and Teaching project shows us that when we make our pedagogy explicit, Underrepresented Minority and First-Generation Students experience more success.

Through this hands-on, in-person workshop, faculty will get an overview of Teaching with Transparency practices, evaluate current practices, and work in small groups to identify adjustments we might make to our own assignments.

This exhibit tells the stories of freshmen year from participants in a student success intiative, WKU Freshmen Guided Pathway (FGP). This cohort of first-time, full-time students who graduated from one of five high schools in Warren County represent the typical WKU freshman in terms of academic achievement prior to admission and their demographic makeup.

FGP assists students as they negotiate the often difficult affective and academic shifts between high school and college. Learn more about the program in this exhibit, presented by the Kelly M. Burch Institute for Transformative Practices in Higher Education, Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing, the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, the WKU Center for Literacy, and the Kentucky Museum.

Have you ever wondered why students don’t seem to be learning what you want them to learn or doing what you want them to do? Asking students for their feedback on what’s working and not working for them can provide valuable information you can use to improve student learning, performance and motivation. 

Join us for a discussion of tangible strategies that you can immediately and easily implement to get usable student feedback.
