The QEP at UNT Dallas developed from a comprehensive, methodical, and logical planning process conducted over an 18-month period. The plan resulted from the input and efforts of faculty, staff, administrators, and students, and local employers representing a broad range of university stakeholders. The selection of the QEP topic was the first component of the plan.

As described below, UNT Dallas employed an extensive, deliberate, and inclusive process to select a topic that advanced student success and was consistent with the university’s mission and strategic plan. Selection of the QEP Topic developed over five stages. 

The sections below describe the phases taken to develop the QEP.  The phases are:

  • Phase I: Initial Planning and Topic Identification
  • Phase II: Linkage with the UNT Dallas Strategic Plan
  • Phase III: Refinement of the Proposed QEP Topic
  • Phase IV: Approving the Plan
  • Phase V: Developing a Foundation for Implementation
