Institutions applying for initial or renewal of accreditation must develop a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The QEP should focus on involving the greater academic community, addressing issues that contribute to institutional improvement and enhancing student learning.

"Igniting" the Future

Embry-Riddle's QEP is known as Ignite. It focuses on encouraging undergraduate research, through:

  • innovative research opportunities
  • increased research funding
  • expanded academic and co-curricular experiences
  • enhanced faculty-student research collaboration¬†

Graduate study programs will also benefit from Ignite. It will help undergraduate students become better prepared for scholarly work, and able to participate at a more advanced level of learning.
