Toward a Culture of Writing Write Well. Think Well.

Toward a Culture of Writing. Write Well. Think Well. 

UST's overall mission is to educate leaders of faith and character.  To that end, it is essential that these leaders are able to communicate effectively both within and across their respective disciplines.  Our QEP mission is to improve students' writing skills across the curriculum, which we believe will foster critical thinking, effective communication, and professional success.

UST Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
The UST Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), “Toward a Culture of Writing,” will advance the University Mission by improving students’ writing skills so that they are able to
  • communicate effectively within and across disciplines
  • think critically  
  • achieve professional success  

Working from clearly articulated educational values for writing, and through a careful analysis of available data in Core subjects, the UST community will

  • evaluate existing practices, resources, strategies, and outcomes to determine their effectiveness
  • identify and address our weaknesses
  • build on our strengths and our unique identity as the Catholic liberal arts university in the heart of Houston
  • educate better writers and thinkers in all disciplines.
