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.

History suggests that as “big business” started to take hold in the late 1800s, women became more involved in business and working outside the home. However, few women owned companies. Those that did were in industries centered on women, such as home goods, apparel, or personal care.

Today, women own only 40% of businesses in the U.S., making Carrie Burnam Taylor’s business of the early 20th century that much more impressive. Curated with Dr. Carrie Cox, this exhibit will explore Taylor's life and work, displaying three of her dresses, two coats, two bodices, and various undergarments recently conserved thanks to our Adopt-an-Artifact program.

When Disaster Strikes
Reporting community stories during the December tornadoes

Thursday March 31, 2022

  • 5:30 p.m. Photo Exhibit, Jody Richards Hall Gallery, WKU
  • 6:30 p.m. Panel Discussion, Jody Richards Hall Auditorium, WKU

Everybody has a story to tell from the December tornadoes that struck western Kentucky. Area journalists began telling those stories before the tornadoes even touched down, and continue to bring to light the struggles people face while rebuilding from the storms.

Western Kentucky University’s School of Media, as part of The John B. Gaines Family Lecture Series, offers an evening looking back at the stories surrounding the December tornadoes and what was involved in sharing those stories with the journalists' communities.

The series includes a 5:30 p.m. opening for an exhibit of 59 photographs documenting the impact of the tornadoes, taken by photographers throughout the region.

At 6:30 p.m. our panel of four journalists will discuss their experiences telling their communities' stories as the events unfolded. The panelists include meteorologist Trent Okerson of Paducah’s WPSD, photojournalist Grace Ramey at the Bowling Green Daily News, and Rick Rojas, a national correspondent for The New York Times. WKU Public Radio host Alana Watson will moderate the discussion.

The photo exhibit will be on display March 28 to April 22, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
