See student success in action at the Wangensteen!

This multi-part exhibit explores how students from a variety of academic disciplines use historical materials from the Wangensteen in their coursework. Included in the exhibit are selections from assignments that tied in to course-integrated instructional sessions, such as prospectuses created in Bill Moran’s GDES 4131W History of Graphic Design course; excerpts from public history blog posts written for Christopher Kindell’s HMED 3075 Technology and Medicine in Modern America course; and poetry inspired by medical illustration for Ann Tandy-Treiber’s ENGL 1051 Progress and Madness: Literature, Science and Technology course. Also featured in this exhibit are two independent projects that were completed at the Wangensteen, one through the Dean’s First-Year Research & Creative Scholars (DFRACS) Program and the other through a directed study. 

By displaying the scholarly and creative output of thirty-eight undergraduate students, this exhibit demonstrates the Wangensteen’s commitment to fostering and strengthening student success, and celebrating the inspiring work that students from all academic disciplines produce when working with these historic collections.
