As part of the institutional accreditation, each university is required to submit a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).  The QEP is a strategic initiative to improve student learning, outcomes, and success.  UD's 2014 QEP, Discern, Experience, Achieve: Preparing for Life and Work in a Changing World, is targeted to prepare students for careers and vocations, assist with graduate school,  and guide students through the process of applying for prestigious fellowships and scholarships.  The final report for the QEP will be submitted in March, 2020.
