MT Engage, the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan for 2016–21, has reached several milestones midway through its second year.
- Our first annual MT Engage Sophomore Scholarship competition begins this semester, opening up Jan. 15. Qualifying sophomores who have taken at least two MT Engage courses will submit ePortfolio presentations in which they document and reflect on connections across their academic and cocurricular experiences. Up to 15 students will be selected for scholarships valued at $6,000 (based on cost of attendance), and all qualifying applicants will earn priority registration.
- More than 3,500 students successfully completed MT Engage-designated courses in Fall 2017, representing 187 sections of 64 courses taught by 98 faculty—double the benchmarks specified for the full 2017–18 academic year in the MT Engage plan. MT Engage faculty will teach a similar number of course sections in Spring 2018 as well.
- The MT Engage leadership team and assistant director wowed their audience at the 2017 Quality Enhancement and Accreditation Institute of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Dianna Rust, Michelle Boyer-Pennington, Lara Daniel, Lexy Denton, and Jason Vance shared their insights from the development of the MT Engage QEP in their presentation, “Engaging Your Campus with a New Quality Enhancement Plan.”
