WOW faculty is comprised of a talented group of individuals from area pre-K-12 public and private schools, as well as from the Bradley University faculty. WOW student aides are an enthusiastic group of Bradley University students who choose to work with the program by helping students in between classes, assisting in their classrooms, and providing recreational activities.
Since 1983, the Bradley University Institute for Gifted and Talented Youth and its predecessor, the Peoria County Foreign Language Immersion Program, have offered summer educational program opportunities for Central Illinois youth. The Institute's summer program, World of Wonder (WOW), features a broad array of one-week courses, which enables first through eighth grade students to explore and expand their interests and abilities in a university environment.
