1. What is the Quality Enhancement Plan?
A Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a plan of action mandated by SACS as part of the reaffirmation/reaccreditation process; a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a five-year plan with goals, objectives, learning outcomes, strategies, and assessment that focus on enhancing student learning. The plan also includes broad-based community involvement, a sound budget, proof of the university’s ability to sustain the proposed project, and a marketing plan.
Details on each strategy begin on page 23 of the QEP document.
The strategies will be assessed using the following measures:
Evaluation of the plan:
To evaluate the entire Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program, semester reports will be generated and included in annual assessment reports on the QEP initiatives to be given to the Director of Institutional Effectiveness and the Vice President of Academic Affairs. The five-year impact report mandated by the SACS-COC will be compiled from these reports. Data from the semester and annual reports will be used to determine if changes must be made to the WAC program or if a new program needs to be introduced. The ongoing monitoring process will access data on how effective the WAC program is for Virginia Union University.
Details on assessments and evaluation of the plan begin on page 30 of the QEP document.
