QEP Sessions Launched

QEP discussion 2018

As part of the University’s reaffirmation of accreditation, the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) committee is presenting a series of seminars for faculty and staff. The QEP — Close Reading for Effective Writing — seeks to provide students with the tools to read, think and write critically. The seminars are held every other Wednesday at noon in the Library Orientation Room.

The first seminar, held Sept. 26, discussed an editorial by William Lloyd Garrison on the Constitution and to suggest ways of using such a primary source document in the college classroom within the QEP context. Subsequent seminars have discussed the importance of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in having a stable economy and excerpts from the Dalai Lama's The Universe in a Single Atom and how these subjects can be used in the classroom within the context of the QEP.

The panelists from the first seminar, pictured left to right, are Dr. Stephanie Richmond, Dr. Cathy Jackson, Prof. Carol Pretlow and Dr. Colita Fairfax.
