Welcome to Inquiry ARC

UNC Asheville's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Inquiry ARC, centers on improving critical thinking through activities of inquiry, application, reflection and communication. The Quality Enhancement Plan is a requirement for accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The QEP allows an institution to identify an important issue related to student learning and design creative ways to improve student learning on that issue.

Inquiry ARC reflects UNC Asheville’s dedication to providing an education that empowers students for active and meaningful futures marked by a love of learning and the intellectual and emotional capacity to be “seriously creative” throughout their lives.
