One important element of the reaffirmation process is the development of a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), designed to strengthen student learning.  As you probably know by now, given all the banners and flyers you’ve seen in recent weeks, our QEP is called “Level Up:  Transformative Teaching through Powerful Assignments.”  Eric Fournier, who helped our faculty, staff and students to create and shape the program, told me last week that “a compelling part of the QEP process has been how so many people worked together to develop a plan that is dedicated to improving student learning by helping faculty become more effective teachers.”  I agree!

If you have a spare minute, watch this brief video to learn more about the QEP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji1N4R2LmrI

The world is better because of our innovative, dedicated faculty.
