Faulkner University

Quality Enhancement Program (QEP)

Volunteer of the Year Celebration

The Quality Enhancement Program (QEP) for Faulkner is Spiritual formation. The goal of the QEP is to enhance each student's education at Faulkner through the development of the whole person. The three prongs of one's spiritual formation are the development of one's intellect, character and propensity to service.

What makes up Spiritual formation...

Faulkner University defines spiritual formation as the growth and development of the whole person by an intentional and deliberate process that focuses on the nurturing of (1) faith, (2) the spiritual practices (e.g. prayer, the study of scripture, meditation, and worship), and (3) interactions with others in ordinary life.

As a Christian university, the pursuit of a Spiritual Formation Program is not only logical, but is directly derived from the mission, vision, and core values of the University. Spiritual formation is also reflected in Faulkner's conceptual framework and in the Biblical principles embraced by the institution (Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:29-31; Luke 10:25-29, Deuteronomy 6:4-6; and Leviticus 19:8).

The Spiritual Formation Program focuses on the elements of the conceptual framework and their interconnected relationship. The Spiritual Formation Program is conceived as a holistic program for spiritual formation that nurtures intellect, character and service through the development of knowledge, skills and dispositions to support lifelong spiritual development. The Spiritual Formation Program is supported through curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular elements, such as, Biblical studies and Cultural Heritage courses, Character Communities, Sportsmanship Instruction, Faulkner Honor Code and Service activities.
