(March 22, 2010)--Wednesday, March 24 is "Wear Your QEP T-shirt Day!" Anyone at UTSA wearing a QEP t-shirt on Wednesday will receive a free snack at two special events -- while supplies last. If you don't have a QEP t-shirt, get your hand stamped with the QEP stamp at one of the events:
QEP is the Quality Enhancement Plan, an important part of UTSA's reaccreditation effort. The vision of QEP is that students who graduate from UTSA will be able to understand the role of numbers in their professional and personal lives, know how to reason and think using numbers, and use data to make decisions.
On March 23-25, UTSA will host the review team from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools at our campuses. SACS re-accreditation takes place every 10 years.
>> If a SACS team member stops you on campus and asks if you know basic information about the QEP -- UTSA students, faculty and staff can be prepared by reading the QEP Executive Summary (PDF document).
For more information, contact Nancy Martin, UTSA associate vice provost for core curriculum and QEP, at 210-458-5187.
UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
