Process - [ Quality Enhancement Plan ]

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) replaces the traditional Self-Study used for past reaffirmations. The QEP "describes a carefully designed course of action that addresses a well-defined and focused topic or issue related to enhancing student learning" (Quality Enhancement Plan Handbook, 2008). It is intended to be an outgrowth of the institution's ongoing planning and evaluation process related to its institutional mission. The QEP supplements the institution's ongoing, institution-wide planning and evaluation processes and allows the institution to transform a vision for enhancing student learning into reality.
