What is a QEP?
QEP stands for Quality Enhancement Plan. In short, a QEP is a plan to implement and assess a focused set of initiatives designed to improve student learning across the university. While a QEP is a required element of university accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), it also presents a unique opportunity to coordinate and strengthen the educational experiences of students by focusing on the future rather than evaluating the past.
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) is a private, nonprofit, voluntary organization founded in 1895 in Atlanta, Georgia. It is the regional body in the southern states responsible for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions. The following links will direct you to important information regarding the reaffirmation of accreditation and Quality Enhancement Planning process.
SACSCOC On-Site Visit
As one of the final phases of the reaffirmation of accreditation process, an on-site committee from SACSCOC will visit our campus March 3-6, 2014. The committee will review the QEP and meet with a wide variety of constituents including faculty, staff, students and administrators from across campus.
