Your Pathway to Transformational Experiences
We’ve built a home for St. Kate’s engaged learning programs within the Office of Scholarly Engagement (OSE). These programs are proven to have powerful educational benefits and provide opportunities for meaningful student-faculty interactions and mentorship. Students can leverage OSE’s local and global programs to complement their studies, realize their agency as changemakers, and build connections across and beyond the University.
OSE houses the following programs:
This cohort-based academic experience is built around a strong community and culminates in the creation and completion of a rigorous independent thesis. Since the program began in 1986, it has graduated over 300 Antonian Scholars.
Faculty and staff provide intensive, one-on-one mentoring to student candidates. The application and interview process itself cultivates intellectual growth and awareness of career trajectories, propelling students toward greater post-graduate success.
Facilitating meaningful community engagement through course-based work, scholarship, and student employment, students have opportunities to practice critical and creative thinking while gaining real-world experience.
Advancing the University’s mission and vision through engagement with global cultures, communities, and environments, these experiential programs provide both liberal arts and professional experience with an emphasis on accessibility, inclusion, and cultural sensitivity.
Students from a wide range of disciplines currently collaborate with faculty, engaging in deep learning and developing as scholars. Since 2010, nearly 200 students have participated in the Summer Scholars student research program, with most presenting at national conferences.
