CEHD Welcomes Newest Transformational Learning Fellows
Thirteen new graduates in the Spring 2017 class completed the CEHD Transformational Learning Fellows program. The graduates all represent the second cohort of recipients in the program designed to recognize students who demonstrate a commitment to high-impact learning and transformational engagement.
Each student exercises their development through completing various coursework, their involvement of different service groups, non-profit organizations, and other extracurricular activities. Some include resources within the College of Education and Human Development like the Center for Translational Research in Aging and Longevity (CTRAL) and the Center on Disability and Development (CDD).
“The Transformational Learning Fellows Program is amazing in that it recognizes students that take full advantage of the curricular and co-curricular experiences that the college and the greater university has to offer,” said Manager for Assessment and High Impact Practices Patrice French. “Unlike other fellows programs that may highlight academic achievement as a main indicator of success, the fellows program challenges students to explore the most impactful parts of their learning experience.”
Education major Khione Stevenson participated in the program as a way of shaping her academic and professional life after graduation. She said the program helped her to develop skills that she hoped to use later on in a classroom of her own.
“I decided to participate in the Transformational Learning Fellows program because I knew that it transformed lives and that’s exactly what I wanted to do,” Stevenson said.
Similarly, other graduates participated in the program as a way of standing out amongst their peers and using the plentiful resources around campus.
“I thought it’d be a good way to distinguish myself from this very competitive market,” said Human Resource Development major Hesti Vijoen.
Other graduates of the program include: Haley Bray, Atik Lalani, Nataly Torres, Lillian Townsend, Michelle Wright, Ariel Davila, Macey Normyle, Sarah Bankhead, Branden Nguyen, Jade Ruiz, and Rachel Work.
