Camaraderie of writers: Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) for cultivating excellence in student writing
by Oxenreider, Anne Louise, M.A., Western Carolina University, 2010, 92; 1478010
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis presents the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) for the development of a writing fellows program at Montreat College, a small, Christian, liberal arts college in Western North Carolina. This expression of a Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program model seeks to expand the writing processes and increase the self-assessment abilities of our undergraduate students. The program adds classroom-based peer writing tutors and a focused faculty development program to our already successful drop-in writing center services. The QEP document includes a description of the development process, needs assessment process, Student Learning Objectives (SLOs), five-year budget with narrative, and the assessment plan. The introduction describes the roles of each program participant in the QEP.

Keywords: writing fellows program, classroom-based tutoring, Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC), Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
