Washburn Transformational Experience (WTE)

Washburn Transformational Experience (WTE)

The Washburn Transformational Experience (WTE) is a program that provides Washburn University students with amazing opportunities and experiences.  It is our dream program.  What is your dream?  What have you always thought of doing or accomplishing?  The WTE turns dreams into reality. The WTE goes beyond the everyday classroom experience by allowing students to choose and create projects that reflect their interests.  

There are four (4) WTE areas and students are encouraged to complete one or more of them:

  • Community Service
    • Do you have a passion for helping those in need?  Make the world a better place.
  • International Education
    • Want to travel to a foreign country?  Ever think of studying abroad for a semester/year?
  • Leadership
    • Something broken?  Better way of doing things?  Here's your chance.
  • Scholarly or Creative
    • Make an amazing discovery.  Create something new.  Explore your mind.
PLEASE READ WHILE THERE ARE PLENTY OF FUNDS TO PAY FOR POSTERS RELATED TO ALL WTE PROJECTS, THERE ARE UNFORTUNATELY NO FUNDS TO COVER THE EXPENSE OF TRAVEL OR SUPPLIES RELATED TO SCHOLARLY CREATIVE WTE PROJECTS OR FUNDS TO COVER THE EXPENSE OF TRAVELING ABROAD FOR AN INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION WTE (EXCEPTION: FACULTY LED PROGRAMS THAT HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED AN AWARD) UNTIL AFTER JULY 1.
