Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)

Synthesis: A Pathway to Intentional Learning
The Western Carolina experience is built on a foundation of engaged, intentional learning. Life goals are like climbing mountains. Working as partners in learning, students, faculty, and staff will choose the mountains to climb and the best pathway to get there.

The overarching goal of the QEP is to empower students to integrate knowledge and skills from their academic and co-curricular experiences to become intentional participants in their own learning. To that end, WCU hopes to impact students' understanding of self, intellectual flexibility and versatility, and capacity for integrated learning.

As a result, WCU expects students to:

  1. identify their aptitudes, abilities, and interests and articulate their future goals and aspirations;
  2. modify their behaviors and values in response to knowledge and skills gained from their academic and co-curricular experiences; and
  3. recognize the synthesis of their university experiences relative to their future education and career plans.
