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.

This is an online and virtual workshop this year.

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.

You spend a lot of time and energy providing your students with feedback on their assignments only to be disappointed when you don’t see them using your feedback.  Why don’t students use your feedback?  One reason is that the feedback might not be as effective as it could be.  During this session, we’ll explore research on what students say are characteristics of high-quality feedback.  You’ll also get an opportunity to identify quality feedback and construct your own high-quality feedback.

“Hallowellness combines Halloween and wellness into a fun program for students to take part in on campus. With the structure of the event set up to mimic trick-or-treating, students are sure to leave this event not only more knowledgeable about wellness, but also with some fun treats from each of the programs there. This is a great opportunity for students to enjoy Halloween festivities and become more educated about wellness opportunities on campus.”
