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.
This competitive juried exhibition showcases a selection of work created by students in the WKU Department of Art & Design in the areas of Painting, Drawing, Illustration, Animation, Graphic & UX Design, Printmaking, New Media, Sculpture, Ceramics and Weaving / Fibers.
The Mountain Workshops gather storytellers from around the world to document the diverse communities within the Commonwealth of Kentucky through visual and written narratives. We seek to educate and inspire those participating in the workshops as well as those in the communities we document. We believe in the power of human connection through storytelling, and we create and preserve a valuable cultural archive of Kentucky life.
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 discussion we will hear from students with learning differences who may or may not receive or request accommodations through SARC. We will visit with them about recognizing and reducing barriers to their learning, expectations about accommodations, and how they feel included and/or excluded in their courses.
If you have questions you would like to pose to our students, please submit those prior to the session by emailing email@example.com.
