Quality Enhancement Plans

Bulldog Experience

Mississippi State University has selected experiential learning as the topic for the second Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), which will formally launch in fall 2024. Titled Bulldog Experience, the goal for the next QEP is to engage all MSU undergraduate students in experiential learning activities through both curricular and co-curricular opportunities. Upon completion of these activities, students will reflect on their experiences to demonstrate the transformation of the experience into new knowledge.  View the Bulldog Experience Quality Enhancement Plan submitted to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) here.

Maroon and Write

The Maroon and Write Impact Report documents the achievements of Maroon and Write and reflections on its impact on MSU. This plan sought to improve undergraduate student writing by implementing a writing across the curriculum model, using writing-to-learn strategies and formal writing instruction. The institution encouraged students to practice writing throughout their academic careers. While the inaugural QEP concluded in 2019, the work of Maroon and Write is being continued by the Department of English.
