ACES Project

The Lamar University Quality Enhancement Plan, Active & Collaborative Engagement for Students (ACES), focuses on improving student learning in core and developmental courses by promoting active and collaborative learning.


Lamar University selected freshman courses as an area of need based on student satisfaction surveys, results of the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE, 2006, 2008), strategic plan goals, and results of core curriculum student learning assessments conducted in 2005 and 2008.
