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.

In the Fall of 2020, Western Kentucky University Honors Students in a World Regional Geography course were inspired to host a podcast series of interviews with international travelers from the WKU community. These students wanted to bring faraway places of the world to campus. The regions discussed are Oceania, Russia and the Independent States, Sub-Saharan Africa, East Asia, and Europe. Join us as they discuss traveling the world during COVID times!

Listen here! 

Zimbabwe podcast will release on 3/17/2021
