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.

Each year, through the generosity of retired WKU Folk Studies professor Camilla Collins and her partner Dr. Jane Bramham, we are able to “bring” (via Zoom) an experienced public folklorist to WKU for an intimate workshop with our graduate students. We are excited to present Dr. Jon Kay, rescheduled from last March, who also happens to be an alum of our program. In the tradition of the C-B workshop, the afternoons on both days are reserved for one-on-one session with Jon. This event is closed to the public and for graduate students only.
