A stakeholder is anyone who has an interest in the QEP.  Obviously, students and faculty are stakeholders since they are most directly and immediately impacted by the QEP.  Another important stakeholder is Student Life, since writing is intended to affect the student’s entire experience at HBU.  The Board of Trustees is also a stakeholder.  After all, the Board has oversight for the University, to ensure that the University’s programs are aligned with its mission and vision.  Other stakeholders are alumni, employers, and the community in general.  For alumni, the quality of recent HBU graduates is very important, since this next generation is a reflection on the alumni.  Employers have a stake in the QEP because they will derive a great benefit as they hire a new generation of young people with superior skills in writing and communication.  Finally, the community as a whole benefits when young people leave the university prepared to participate in society because writing has sharpened their thinking and speaking.
