You’re invited to submit a campus theme topic

For the past seven years, WCU has selected an interdisciplinary theme for campus conversations, curricular, and co-curricular connections, and enrichment. Our current theme, an interdisciplinary exploration of Africa, is entering its second and final year. Additional details about the current theme are forthcoming (Africa.wcu.edu).

The office for Undergraduate Studies invites submissions for campus theme topics for 2017-18. Please take a moment to submit a potential topic for our next campus theme by clicking on the following link (due by Thursday, September 15th). A committee will select and announce the final theme in early October.

Submit a Campus Theme Topic

The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), of which WCU is a member institution, has identified 10 High Impact Educational Practices that foster student learning and engagement in college. Campus themes constitute one example of a high impact practice that provides students with common and collaborative educational experiences, opportunities to connect curricular and co-curricular learning, and explorations of disciplines through a common lens. While participation is optional by students, faculty and staff, we encourage integration of our campus theme in your classes, events, and activities.
