Statement of Faculty Senate Action:

 

 

Sense of the Senate Resolution

 

The UNC Asheville QEP will focus on enhancing studentsí critical thinking through participation in academically rigorous experiences that involve inquiry (identifying an issue), application (designing a project), reflection (reflecting on what was learned as well as the learning process) and communication (broadening the experience).

 

Rationale:

The draft of the Quality Enhancement Draft (QEP) for our SACS re-accreditation recently became available to the campus-- we are accepting comments and suggestions through October 10, 2011.In order to move forward with the final version of the Plan, the QEP Leadership Team and Academic Affairs request endorsement for the topic of our QEP from the UNC Asheville Faculty Senate.A one-sentence summary appears above.
