Quality Enhancement Plan (2017)

Every member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) is required to develop a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The QEP describes the University's approach to addressing -- through a systematic, sustained, institution-wide effort -- a key student learning issue fundamental to the University's mission.

For the 2017 reaffirmation, the University has selected written communication as the topic of its QEP. The QEP Design Committee has been charged with oversight of the development of the QEP.
