QEP Topic Selected: Provost

I am pleased to announce that President Rick Hurley and I have selected  “Understanding and Improving the First-Year Experience” as our Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) topic. With that decision, the planning process for QEP topic moves to a new stage.  Our next step is the formation of a QEP Project Team that will develop our full QEP proposal and report.  At this time, I am calling for volunteers who would like to work on the QEP project team.  Please let me know if you are interested in serving. 

Members of the project team can and will come from all divisions of UMW (all three colleges, student affairs, business and finance, etc.).   I expect to announce a chairperson to lead the project team by the end of the month.  The ultimate aim of the QEP is that we embark on the five-year plan that should result in improved student learning.   This is extremely important work that is an integral part of our SACS reaffirmation.  The final project planning, led by the QEP Project Team, will take place over the next year and a half, culminating in a final report produced in 2012.

  1. We have two freshman dorms next to the parking deck.

    Freshmen do not have cars but have bikes. There are corners in the deck that are yellow cross hatched to prevent car parking. Place a free standing bike rack in theses corners on the lower levels. That will get the bikes out of the rain and weather. It will also make the walk between Alvey & Arrington Halls look better

    This would be similar to the bike storage room at Eagle Landing. The one that is not yet in use.
