We are doing it for two reasons. First, it is part of the reaccreditation process for the University. An accrediting agency certifies the quality of a university. This is similar to the agencies that issue licenses for doctors to practice medicine or licenses for lawyers to practice law. Second, the mission and vision of the University require a focus on writing. The current Liberal Arts Core Curriculum, which was developed specifically in response to HBU’s mission and vision, also requires a focus on writing. The QEP supports initiatives of the university and the Liberal Arts Core.
