shared with the committee that she, Ms. Velez, and Mr. Riley had just finished
an open forum “Coffee, Tea, and the QEP” in the student center from 12 to 1pm
with a focus on displaying the logo contest entries. Eight of the 17 students who entered the
contest came to the event, and 52 QEP pens were distributed. Students who visited the table expressed
interest in receiving more help with their writing, particularly in the area of
grammar. Their responses to the QEP were
positive. Dr. Lofaso and Ms. Velez will
host another “Coffee, Tea, and QEP” later today (5pm) with evening students as
the target group.
Velez informed the committee that a meeting of Developmental English
