Provost Michele Gillespie and the QEP Proposal Selection Committee are grateful for the engagement and valuable feedback provided by our community during the proposal development process and the review of the finalist proposals in April. The selection committee carefully considered the comments and suggestions from faculty, staff, and students before making their final recommendation to the Provost. Both the Office of the Provost and the SACSCOC Reaffirmation Leadership Team appreciate the thoughtful discussion and careful work by the QEP Proposal Selection Committee to arrive at this terrific topic for Wake Forest’s next QEP.   

Moving forward, Associate Provost for Academic Affairs Anne Hardcastle will collaborate with the deans and other campus partners to assemble a QEP Development Committee. This committee will work from 2024-2026 to design specific initiatives that advance student learning and success through experiential learning. 

In the coming academic year, there will be additional opportunities for the Wake Forest community to engage with and contribute to the development of experiential learning ideas and programs related to the QEP. If you would like to support the QEP development or would like more information, please contact Anne Hardcastle.
