Core Requirement 2.12 of the SACS Principles of Accreditation requires an institution to have a plan for increasing the effectiveness of some aspect of its educational program relating to student learning. The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a document developed by the institution that describes a course of action for institutional improvement. The QEP addresses a well-defined topic or issue(s) related to enhancing student learning.
Student learning is defined broadly in the context of the QEP and may address a wide range of topics or issues. It may include changes in students' knowledge, skills, behaviors, and/or values that may be attributable to the collegiate experience. Examples of topics or issues include, but are not limited to, enhancing the academic climate for student learning, strengthening the general studies curriculum, developing creative approaches to experiential learning, enhancing critical thinking skills, introducing innovative teaching and learning strategies, and exploring imaginative ways to use technology in the curriculum.
The QEP Committee solicits your input in determining the topic or issue(s) for the QEP. Please provide specific answers to the questions listed below. You can also submit information electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the discussion board at the QEP Blackboard site (UNCP Quality Enhancement for SACS) to which all faculty are subscribed. Thank you for your help.
