Student Success, a Library Case in Supporting Student Success

Title

Student Success, a Library Case in Supporting Student Success

Description

Reynolds Libraries have offered a display of student projects called the “Reynolds Student Expo” for the past three years. Faculty from all disciplines and programs are invited to take part; they select their best student projects to represent their courses and bring them to the library. Library staff organize and display all formats of student works including: posters, essays, digital presentations, sculptures, photographs, floral arrangements, and even cakes. The results have been three fold: Reynolds Library has positively impacted student success and generated an enormous feeling of pride in the content and execution of student projects. Faculty members are rewarded by the promotion of their courses. Students are applauded for the creativity, content and execution of their projects. Over two thirds of the students reported that they demonstrated more motivation and stronger comprehension of the course content, and received better grades as a result of their participation.
