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.
UNC Pembroke’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a large-scale project designed to improve students’ chances at success in college and beyond. It will provide students with intensive instruction and practice in the area of writing. During their first year, students will have more opportunities to take “Plus One” courses, which will provide them with more time with their composition instructors. After completing first-year composition, each student will take three additional courses, including both “Writing Enhanced” classes in various subjects and a “Writing in the Disciplines” class in his or her major. Students can look forward to learning helpful strategies in writing effectively and ultimately to enjoying greater chances of success in their lives and careers. We hope you will embrace the opportunity to “write to the top.”
