Thursday, Feb 7, 2013
The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Committee is looking for students who can share their ideas about reading and advise the faculty and staff team during the planning and implementation phases of Read to Succeed, the new QEP project.
Students who are interested in serving on a newly-created QEP Student Advisory Committee are asked to submit an essay on: "Why is reading important?"
Up to two students will be chosen for the committee based on the essay contest.
Follow the rules below for a chance to win.
Answer the following question in your essay: “Why is reading important?”
To be considered, your entry should be:
- 500 words or less
- Double-spaced with 1-inch margins and 12-point Times New Roman font
- Submitted by 5 p.m. on Feb. 18, 2013
- Emailed to Lisa Valentino
In addition to this opportunity to help our campus, winners will receive a bookstore gift card and get their papers published in The Scribe, the student newspaper.
Read to Succeed was chosen as the name for the QEP in December. The new collegewide initiative will focus on improving reading comprehension and creating a culture of reading at the College.
QEP is a core requirement for reaccreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges. This process requires the College to submit a comprehensive compliance certification document and a QEP centered on a single academic topic by summer 2013. For more information, please visit the QEP home page.
