In politics, the old adage “having a seat at the table” is often used to refer to those in positions of power, influence and policy making. This poster exhibit highlights a few of the women who have held political office and had “a seat at the table” in decision making for the Commonwealth.
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.
Gazing Deeply showcases how WKU’s backyard—the unique landscape of Mammoth Cave—is being studied, interpreted, and inspiring action on environmental change. Coinciding with the UNESCO Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community and Earth Day’s 50th anniversary in 2020, this exhibition is a collaborative effort between arts and science faculty and students that highlights one of the most well-known and vital natural landscapes in the world.
Jennifer Dunn grew up between a cmetery and a trailer park and wore a homemade dress to prom - twice. She turns her family stories (the double murder, the time her great-grandpappy got drunk and took over the fire department) into scripts that showcase Southerness in all of its complexity, diversity, and cussedness. Jennifer's scripts have won top prize at the Atlanta Film Festival, Etowah Film Festival, and Creative Screenwriting Diverse Voices competitions.

In Kulyenchikov, the villagers sell flowers as fish and milk their cows upside down to get more cream. What’s a brand new schoolteacher to do? Eager young Leon shows up for his first job and discovers a town under a curse: everyone in the town is utterly, hopelessly stupid. Including Sophia, the newfound love of his life. The good news is that if he can educate her within 24 hours, the curse will be broken! The bad news is that if he can’t, he’s going to become yet another victim. Everyone has something to learn in this lighthearted comedy by Neil Simon, the playwright known as our “patron saint of laughter.”
