Student- QEP Information Literacy Awards


The QEP Excellence in Writing and Information Literacy Award
This award is given to undergraduate students from any discipline who demonstrate excellent writing and information literacy skills. In addition to fulfilling the requirements of the assignment and earning a good grade, these papers display an “extra something” that reflects the student has taken the time to craft an excellent piece of scholarly writing which integrates and synthesizes research from their disciplinary literature with their own original insight. This is what information literacy is all about. As such, we present them here on the CTLE as models for current and future students and testaments to the quality work of which LMU students are capable.
