Quality Enhancement Program (QEP)
Means Greater Research Opportunities
What is a Quality Enhancement Program?
Institutions applying for initial or renewal of accreditation must develop a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The QEP should focus on involving the greater academic community, addressing issues that contribute to institutional improvement and enhancing student learning.
"Igniting" the Future
Embry-Riddle's QEP is known as Ignite. It focuses on encouraging undergraduate research, through:
- Innovative research opportunities
- Increased research funding
- Expanded academic and co-curricular experiences
- Enhanced faculty-student research collaboration
Graduate study programs will also benefit from Ignite. It will help undergraduate students become better prepared for scholarly work, and able to participate at a more advanced level of learning.
