Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
Trevecca Nazarene University’s Quality Enhancement Plan topic is undergraduate research. The goal of the QEP is to improve student learning by engaging students in undergraduate research. Trevecca defines “undergraduate research” broadly to include creative works in the arts and scholarly work in the humanities, as well as more traditional empirical research. Trevecca’s undergraduate research program also emphasizes the role of faculty members as mentors to student researchers. One of the most distinctive qualities about Trevecca’s undergraduate programs is the sense of community that exists between students and faculty. The undergraduate research program provides additional opportunities for students and faculty members to collaborate. Finally, Trevecca seeks to emphasize the process of acquiring research skills, not just the outcome or result of the research.
Student Learning Outcomes
Through the QEP, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate understanding of scholarship topics in their discipline.
- Demonstrate skills related to conducting scholarship in their discipline.
- Communicate their research findings through written, performance, and/or oral presentations.
