Odyssey Project

Thanks for the cover story on Ave and her journey to the Odyssey Project. Odyssey succeeds because of so many key partners and supporters: the Division of Continuing Studies and English Department, my stellar faculty team (Kevin Mullen, Assistant Director; along with Marshall Cook, Jean Feraca, Gene Phillips, and Craig Werner), development director Colleen Johnson, support from the Wisconsin Humanities Council, UW, and many granting agencies, businesses, and individual donors, and the inspiration of the award-winning Clemente Course in the Humanities. Most of all, I hope anyone reading the article will pay a visit to our website www.odyssey.wisc.edu to find out how to apply or get involved; there's a 24-minute documentary on the left side of our home page that will introduce you to dozens of our eloquent students. One student commented, "The Odyssey Project helped me unwrap my gifts and rewrite the story of my life." Students in our program have amazing gifts and are helping to change the world as they go forward. We are also thrilled to have a $100,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for our new Odyssey Junior program. Visit our website for details. Thanks!
