Join Storyboard – a Beyond the Major Initiative

Beyond the Major launch event

Beyond the Major represents a campus-wide commitment to helping students name their skills, connect their experiences and tell their story. Helping students name the what, why and how of their college experience empowers them to take ownership of their education and plot the story of their future.

Storyboard is a two-year learning and leadership community in which faculty develop strategies for integrating meaningful reflective and narrative practices into a range of courses and experiences. During the first year, this community will research reflection and narrative theories/practices across disciplines with the goal of creating an archive of scholarship and strategies. In the second year, the community will apply the theories to innovative pedagogical practices that can be implemented across campus.
