Women as Empowered Learners and Leaders (WELL): Learning and Leadership Development through Civic Engagement at Bay Path College

Category 2: Program Development Grant

"[This grant supports] a new core curricular initiative: the Women as Empowered Learners and Leaders (WELL) Program. The WELL Program, required of all Bay Path College undergraduates, is a unique model for an integrated general education curriculum which spans the entire undergraduate experience beginning with the first-year experience course (WELL100) and culminating in the capstone course (WELL400). With a holistic approach that connects active learning, reflection, personal well-being, and civic engagement to lifelong learning and leadership development, the WELL Program directly reflects the goals of BTtoP. Grant funds will be used to create opportunities for student civic engagement by supporting projects developed through WELL and major courses, in partnership with the non-profit community and faculty, and to train faculty in assessment of WELL outcomes through the e-portfolio."
