The capstone project. It’s the culmination of a WGU student’s hard work throughout the terms of their online degree program. It represents all their program’s competencies, rolled into one final demonstration of just how much they’ve learned.
Capstones showcase our students’ best work, and with student permission they are archived for other students, graduates, mentors, and accreditors to view. Frequently, the Capstone Team—which consists of facilitators, evaluators, archivists, and a team manager—comes across capstones that truly represent the best of the best, and members want to honor those students for their superlative work. In 2011, the team kicked off the Capstone Recognition Program for graduate-level capstones worthy of extra celebration.
The team has announced its selections for Capstone Excellence for the first half of 2012. Thirteen graduates’ projects were chosen for exemplifying one or more dimensions of excellence: conquering challenges, expressing ingenuity, exhibiting mastery, and/or providing synergy.
Current students and alumni can view all archived projects, including the Capstone Excellence recipients, with their current or former WGU portal login.
Projects are nominated for Capstone Excellence by their capstone evaluator and selected by the capstone facilitator in their program or college area. The Capstone Excellence honorees for the first half of 2012 are:
