Quality Enhancement Plan


The QEP project was developed strategically to align with initiatives to expand the institution’s educational programs and sustain the highest standards of teaching, excellence, and professional competence.  All campus stakeholders, including faculty, administration, staff and students were involved in developing the QEP in a deliberate and comprehensive process through committees, forums, focus groups and surveys. A combination of growth in student enrollment and new degree/honors programs required a formal reassessment and restructuring of current approaches to mentoring, so as to revitalize and develop new strategies. By strengthening mentorship of students and faculty in all programs, MSM will build on past successes, creating a vibrant infrastructure for planned growth. Learning goals were developed to advance our vision to connect, expand, and enhance the mentoring of MSM students to sustain excellence as programs expand.


Our goals can be characterized as:

    1. Assure the success of mentoring programs through ongoing faculty training.
    2. Enhance students’ academic success by expanding and enriching peer/near-peer mentoring and enhancing the support of challenged students in course enrichment mentoring and tutoring.
    3. Enhance student development as professionals through the establishment of learning communities.
