What’s Next? UCF’s Quality Enhancement Plan

The mission of UCF’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), What’s Next: Integrative Learning for Professional and Civic Preparation, is to prepare our graduates to successfully enter and participate in the next steps of their professional and civic lives. What’s Next seeks to help students plan for their futures post-graduation: to not only set goals but to identify the knowledge and skills necessary to reach those goals. The initiative encourages students to connect their classroom knowledge and skills to real-world contexts and, thereby, to develop the ability to transfer knowledge and skills from one context to another. Finally, this initiative promotes opportunities for students to reflect on their experiences, to communicate their knowledge and experiences, and to develop the ability to successfully advocate for themselves in their lives beyond the university.

Exhibit: Joy Postle: Artist Without Limits

Florida artist Joy Postle Blackstone pioneered the art of depicting Florida wildlife like no other. She was deeply inspired by the sights, sounds, and scents of nature from an early age and this greatly influenced her as both an artist and as a writer. She developed her talent for capturing the world around her through mediums such as oil paints, watercolors, pencil sketches, pen and ink, as well as the written word though her writings and poetry. Joy’s dedication to her art propelled her through the hardships of the Great Depression, and she persevered. Her passion and devotion to her work has earned Joy a special place in the history of Central Florida. (more…)
