UHV prepares student success plan for accreditation
University of Houston-Victoria has selected Living and Learning as the theme of the university's accreditation-driven Quality Enhancement Plan to help increase student engagement and retention.
"UHV has undergone a profound cultural change since freshmen and sophomores were admitted in fall 2010," UHV President Phil Castille said. "For the first time, there are UHV students living on campus and discovering what it is like to be a residential college student. We've had a positive transition, with 468 students now living in Jaguar Village. But we want to continue to improve and expand the student learning experience at UHV."
The university is implementing a QEP focused on residential learning communities, which encourage student engagement not only in the classroom but also in their social lives.
UHV's "Living and Learning" QEP is a required component of the university's 2014 accreditation review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. An on-campus accreditation visit will take place in April.
