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.
