									                       QEP 2007-2008 Annual Report Template

The Annual Reports of the Global Learning Coordinators will serve as key evidence of
KSU’s success in achieving the purpose and goals of its QEP, Global Learning for
Engaged Citizenship (GLEC). The reports will be posted on the Web for campus
reference purposes and for formative and summative assessments of QEP progress in FY
2010 and FY 2012. It is especially important to use these narrative reports to describe the
qualitative and quantitative richness of your college/division/unit’s achievements in the
improvement of global learning at KSU over the past year. When describing those
improvements, be sure to also describe adequately the baseline status upon which the
year’s advances in global learning were built.

between baseline status and improvements made in 2007-2008 when describing your
unit’s progress in strengthening global learning opportunities.
