Capstone ePortfolio Showcase

Welcome to Centered on Philanthropy: The Capstone ePortfolio Showcase in Philanthropic Studies

Instructor: Tyrone McKinley Freeman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Philanthropic Studies

Philanthropic studies majors must complete the Capstone in Philanthropic Studies course as a culminating learning experience prior to graduation that integrates their personal and professional development. In this course, students examine big questions in the field of philanthropy; reflect upon the knowledge, skills, and values they have acquired and developed throughout their undergraduate experience; and coherently express their identity as emerging professionals in the world of philanthropy. 

For their capstone projects, students composed electronic portfolios (ePortfolios) to integrate what they have learned, both inside and outside of class, about philanthropic studies as a field of knowledge and about themselves as engaged citizens and emerging professionals entering the workplace or graduate school. Each ePortfolio featured in this virtual showcase presents students’ articulation of their identities as learners and professionals seeking to impact their communities. 

Our theme

We chose “Centered on Philanthropy” as the theme of this virtual capstone showcase. “Centered on Philanthropy” is the part of our lives that anchors us to a specific cause or concern in the world. It is the act of making our experiences and knowledge in philanthropy the focal point of discussion.

We invite you to watch brief video presentations of our ePortfolios below, and then to click through our ePortfolios directly. Please use the provided brief surveys to leave feedback unique to each student. Thank you for taking time to visit with us. We look forward to your feedback about our work!
