U Research is MC's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). Our QEP is a campus-wide initiative that has the potential to make a meaningful and lasting effect on our students’ success, both academically and in all walks of life. While the QEP is a requirement for reaffirmation of SACS accreditation, it is also a reflection of our commitment to improve student learning.
The focus of U Research is the development of information literacy competencies in undergraduate students. Information literacy is the ability to access, evaluate, and use information ethically to solve research and real-world questions or problems. It encompasses critical thinking skills that are vital to success in the workplace and in lifelong learning. U Research can empower MC graduates with the skills necessary to compete in a knowledge-based workplace.
U Research is not just another program. It is a chance to be better at what we do!
