Brainstorming on UAB’s QEP began even before the formal establishment in 2004 of a committee of UAB faculty, staff, and students. This committee surveyed faculty, students, alumni, parents of current students, advisors, administrators, employees, and student affairs staff for their input. They also reviewed best practices in place at other universities and collaborated with expert consultants to develop the plan.
The QEP’s focus on learning will help ensure that UAB students are prepared to meet the challenges of a changing world. The QEP’s recommendations highlight the competencies essential for academic success, professional achievement, and personal fulfillment.
