Theme Interest Survey Results

UMHB QEP Themes

The Quality Enhancement Plan was publicized on the UMHB campus with posters and videos.  Videos were shared via email and QR codes.  Students, faculty, and staff had the opportunity to share ideas for a QEP which could improve learning outcomes.  These ideas were collected via SurveyMonkey.  The qualitative data was organized into the following six themes.  These themes represent 124 student (including 9 graduate students), 61 faculty, 41 staff, and 3 alumni responses.  Each theme includes a learning outcome and descriptors of a potential QEP.  The descriptors are not intended to be an exhaustive list of ways to address the learning outcome.
