Quality Enhancement Plan

Office of SACS Compliance & Reaffirmation

Think! Write! Revolutionize!

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is the component of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) reaccreditation process that reflects and affirms the commitment of the Commission on Colleges to the enhancement of the quality of higher education and to the proposition that student learning is at the heart of the mission of all institutions of higher learning. By definition, the QEP describes a carefully designed course of action that addresses a well-defined and focused topic or issue related to enhancing student learning (Handbook for Reaffirmation of Accreditation, SACS). Developing a QEP as a part of the reaffirmation process is an opportunity for ECSU to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue or issues that the university considers important to improving student learning.
