Scholarly or Creative WTE

Requirements for the Scholarly or Creative WTE

The requirements for the Scholarly or Creative Washburn Transformational Experience are:

  1. The scholarly or creative project must be significant.  That is, the project should result in a significant commitment of scholarly/creative effort on the part of the student, as judged by the student’s faculty mentor.  The project need not be in the student's major.
  2. The scholarly or creative project may be an independent project that is not part of a structured (faculty-planned) course. The project can be part of a capstone course in which the students create or develop their own projects, but not a course in which the students simply follow the instruction of an instructor
  3. The project must be completed under the tutelage of at least one faculty member.  The faculty mentor need not be in the student's major.
  4. The completed project must be presented in a public forum that can take a wide variety of forms.  If you are uncertain about whether the forum is sufficient, please contact Dr. Mike Russell, Scholarly Creative WTE Area Director.
  5. Completion and approval of all WTE "paperwork" (Declaration, Activity Plan, Completion Request Form).

That's it.  Simple and straightforward
