Initiatives

Washington and Lee University: Education and History

In 2017-18, building on our highly impactful "History in the Public Sphere" project, we have planned a series of events, speakers, gatherings, and forums that will all contribute to the ongoing study of our history and our culture.

Events

The Provost's Office sponsors many projects, speakers, readings, and performances throughout the Academic year. Of particular note are several campus-wide events that unite national commemorations with our own campus community.

Quality Enhancement Plan

The Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP, is a requirement of the SACS-COC’s reaffirmation of accreditation process. It outlines a course of action that addresses issues related to enhancing the student experience. It is a broad-based project focused on undergraduate teaching/learning is inclusive of a large part of the university community.

In December 2015, the University Committee on Inclusiveness and Campus Climate unanimously approved the University of Chicago 2015 “Statement on Freedom of Expression” and the AAC&U 2006 “Statement on Academic Freedom and Educational Responsibility” as guiding documents for how we think about freedom of expression on our campus.
