Centers of Excellence

2018-2019 Catalogue

The Center for Creative and Performing Arts

The recently created Center for Creative and Performing Arts serves Wesleyan and the Central Georgia community with a variety of visual, musical, and theatrical experiences. Our students benefit from direct links between those experiences and their courses in art history, education, English, music, studio art, theatre, and voice. Students learn from active involvement with art exhibitions, master classes in performance and voice, workshops, artists-in-residence, and visiting art historians and conservators. Focused internships are planned every semester. The Center will also contribute to the care and stewardship of the College's wide collection of art, decorative art, and furnishings.

The Center for Educational Renewal

The focus of the Center for Educational Renewal is promoting positive social, structural and curricular change in P-12 schools and the programs that prepare teachers for these settings. The Center for Educational Renewal builds partnerships with local agencies, develops alternative ways for preparing teachers, and encourages research and activism that address the problems of today's educational systems.

The Center for Global Initiatives

The Center for Global Initiatives (CGI) was established in 2014 to create and coordinate globally themed curricular and extracurricular programs at Wesleyan College. To do this, the CGI draws upon the resources of the Confucius Institute at Wesleyan College, the Willet Memorial Library, academic programs, students groups and organizations, and the broader Georgia community in its mission of encouraging a broader understanding of the interconnected world in which the Wesleyan community lives and works. The CGI also oversees the College's new Global Scholars program and Asian Studies minor.

The Center for Women in Science and Technology

The goals of the Center For Women In Science And Technology are to engage, sustain and retain women in science and mathematics and to encourage the development of women to assume leadership roles in these fields. Wesleyan recognizes that the participation of women in science and technology fields is vital to our community and our nation and that aptitude in these areas must be encouraged from an early age. The Center provides opportunities for Wesleyan students to use their knowledge of science and mathematics by mentoring schoolchildren through the KISMET (Kids In Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology) program and serving as counselors for SPECTACLES math and science summer camps for Middle School girls. Other initiatives of the Center are aimed at developing mechanisms to support systemic improvements in the teaching and learning of science and mathematics. The Center is housed in the Munroe Science Center on the Wesleyan College campus.

The Lane Center for Service and Leadership

The Lane Center for Service and Leadership was established in 2002 to become a focal point of community service and engagement in Central Georgia and to serve as a role model for college/community collaboration nationally. The Center has three goals: to promote and manage specific acts of community service and engagement through assessing community needs, working collaboratively with partners to secure funding for service projects, and coordinating those projects; to instill the spirit of service and engagement into our pedagogical processes; and to teach and model civic leadership and personal responsibility through conferences, workshops, and conversations sponsored by the Center. The Center is housed in Olive Swann Porter on the Wesleyan College campus.
