Event Image Exhibition | "David Roberts: Travels in the Holy Land" | Aug. 10 - Dec. 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Title: Gauging and Strengthening Quantitative Skills at Entry: New Options for Improving Students’ Course Placement and Academic Success Abstract: Mathematically underprepared students are a large and growing concern in higher education. This can pose special challenges for small, liberal arts colleges with limited course offerings. Identifying and addressing the needs of these students enhances their success across a wide range of courses in the sciences, humanities, and arts. Doing so also contributes to broader institutional success in terms of graduation rates and retention. If a college admits students with such varied quantitative preparation, I suggest that it bears the responsibility of providing certain resources necessary to help them be successful in their courses. In this talk I will discuss how Lewis & Clark College handles math proficiency and placement testing as well as options for remediation for those students who need it most. Such placement and support efforts ultimately contribute to the academic success of all students, including those initially seen as having strong quantitative preparation.
