QUALITY ENHANCEMENT PLAN - Developing U-Research: Developing the QEP - U Research

Designed for those aiding in the development of U-Research as MC's Quality Enhancment Plan, this guide includes information on books, articles, statistical data, and web sites dealing with information literacy (IL) and related topics.

NOTE:

This guide is no longer maintained.  It is strictly for historical purposes and was used as we developed U Research.  

Additional Information

 Research is MC's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).  The focus of U Research is the development of information literacy competencies in undergraduate students.  Our QEP is a campus-wide initiative that has the potential to make a meaningful and lasting effect on our students’ success.  While the QEP is a requirement for reaffirmation of SACS accreditation, it is also a reflection of our commitment to improve student learning.

U Research is not just another program.  It is a chance to be better at what we do!

  

Engage.  Empower.  Enhance.
