Each long semester, a Faculty Book Club  meets three times, to read and discuss literature relevant to the QEP and other academic endeavors. The Faculty Book Club will be part of the instructors’ regular development activities and can be self-reported in the Annual Faculty Report, the F2.08.

The first offering was led by the QEP Seahawks SOAR Advisory Faculty Book Club Sub-committee Chair in spring 2013, and the book selection was Teaching Unprepared Students: Strategies for Promoting Success and Retention in Higher Education, by Kathleen F. Gabriel. 
In the fall of 2013 ,Dr. Kathleen F. Gabriel came to the LSCPA campus as a  guest speaker at the LSCPA Faculty Development Day training sessions.

Faculty and staff have volunteered to lead subsequent book discussions, upon consultation with the QEP Co-Director of Implementation and Sub-Committee Chair.
