Culminating Experience 

Create a portfolio of your experiences within the program. The purpose of this project is to sharpen student self-knowledge and self-awareness so they can describe their accomplishments accurately and with self-confidence as they enter into the World Beyond Earlham. The portfolio will include a compilation of documents, as well as two original assignments that will require them to spend significant time in deep reflection regarding their intellectual development in the IP. Each portfolio will be unique to the particular student, but must include some basic elements:

  • An annotated bibliography of the 10 most significant scholarly books/articles read in college (at least seven from courses completed as part of the IP).
  • A 1,500 word intellectual autobiography that reviews your development in the IP.
  • In addition to these elements, students must include two mandatory documents, and two optional documents:
    • Past paper written for an IP course.
    • Past examination from an IP course.
    • Assessment letter from an on-campus or off-campus work supervisor.
    • Essay on summer job, work-study or internship accomplishments.
    • Any published work that you have produced.
    • Application for a fellowship, scholarship, off-campus study or graduate school.
