A couple of weeks ago, we asked students to complete a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) survey.  As a reminder, the QEP is a 5 year project to help improve student learning and/or the  learning environment.  If you did not get a chance at Spring Fling to fill out the final survey for our QEP topic, click on the link below to access the survey.  The results of this final survey will reveal our topic, and we want your input!  Please be sure to complete the survey by Tuesday, April 24th.  Thank you again for your help in this important project.
