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.

Political polarization is to be expected in any vibrant democratic society where freedom of expression and belief is respected. That this not spill into violence, however, is something that institutions must ensure. Institutions are those practices and organizations that have become entrenched in given circumstances or contexts. Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law are perhaps the most important legal institution that ensures people with radically different beliefs can live together harmoniously.

Join John Sunnygard as he talks to Belinder Odek and Martin van Staden from Bridge Africa about their work and experience with political unrest in Africa and their perspective on the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6th
