QEP Meeting Minutes
September 24, 2012

Dr. Oldham met with the committee to discuss WC floor plan ideas.  He said that some of the questions that needed to be answered were regarding possible partnership with the CAE or an advising center or even Career Services.  We need to assume some growth.  What space needs do we have?  He needs this information by October 15.

We don’t want the Writing Center with CAE because of the possible remedial label.  How will we be able to keep students from seeing the WC as remedial?

The Core Requirements of SACS are critical.  Key issues must be identified that emerge from institutional assessment.  Suggestion was made to read Alcorn’s plan because it is a good one.

Dr. Cooper asked the question:  what is writing here at UMHB?  What is effective writing?  Brabham will put questions together to survey faculty in different disciplines based on the written composition rubric.

Dumas said effective writing is the following:  well organized, cohesive, and well structured; precise usage and logical argument; rhetorical development.
