One of the components of an institution's reaffirmation is a course of action, or a roadmap, that focuses on enhancing the quality of higher education and student learning. It is expected to include a university-wide process for identifying key issues and a broad-based involvement of institutional constituents in the development and implementation.

The theme from our most recent QEP is “The Madison Collaborative: Ethical Reasoning in Action.” Its goal is to teach ethical decision making skills that students will be able to apply across many personal, professional and civic situations from people close at hand (friends, neighbors, co-workers) to people at a distance (other Americans, global communities). The ability to evaluate ethically the implications of different courses of action for ourselves, others and the community is at the core of JMU's Mission Statement, "preparing students to be educated and enlightened citizens." The on-site review team gave very positive feedback and during the summer of 2013 JMU’s new Madison Collaborative office was established.
