The Mississippi Valley State University (MVSU) Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is an academic initiative to improve student writing ability. Conceived by community and campus-wide consensus as a component of the institution's reaffirmation of accreditation, the QEP is specifically designed to address an identified student-learning outcome stemming from academic assessment.


The plan is faculty-driven and implemented through the general education curriculum starting with English Composition courses and moving horizontally throughout the humanities, natural science and social science courses of the core. After piloting during the 2012-13 academic term, full implementation will begin in the fall of 2013 and continue for the next five years. We believe the plan reflects its title: The Write Way to Success!
