The University of Louisiana at Lafayette's focus for the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is the development and deployment of a university-wide First-Year Seminar for all incoming freshmen. The First-Year Seminar, to be known as “The Cajun Connection,” will be offered as a 2 credit-hour interactive experience led by faculty facilitators and supported by peer mentors. The seminar focuses on stimulating incoming students' intellectual curiosity and social responsibility, providing them with knowledge and insights necessary for fulfillment and success in college and in their subsequent careers.
