Guided by the university’s mission and strategic plan, as well as current research on student engagement, the five-year Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Pioneering Pathways: Learn by Doing focuses on enhancement of student learning through engagement in experiential learning. The QEP provides a systematic plan for implementing and assessing experiential learning throughout the university.

Experiential learning at TWU bridges theory with practice, and is a dynamic, engaged form of learning characterized by active collaboration; real-world problem solving; hands-on application of classroom theories; in-depth engagement with content; or simulation of skills external to the classroom.

The QEP includes the following programs for students and faculty at all TWU locations:

  • Experiential Student Scholars

  • QEP-designated courses

  • Experiential Fellows

  • National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE) Experiential Education Academy

The QEP is co-located in the Pioneer Center for Student Excellence on the second floor of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus.
