The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) celebrated its third annual awards ceremony on March 13. The ceremony recognized new Global Scholars, Global Fellows and Distinguished Global Fellows. The recipients are students, faculty and staff who have engaged in global activities on campus and consider themselves engaged citizens within an interconnected and diverse world. The Quality Enhancement Plan has now recognized a total of 108 Global Scholars and 75 Global Fellows.

Not only are we recognizing students for their participation in these things, we’re also showing our faculty and staff how students are learning and benefitting from all of their efforts.”
