Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Ideas: Home

This guide is designed to assist in the collection and distribution of information regarding the phased collaborative development of a new Quality Enhancement Plan for FSCJ.

Purpose of this Guide: Everything Begins With an Idea

QR codebegin with an ideaThis guide is designed to inform FSCJ students, faculty and staff about the importance of a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) currently under development, and to collect your ideas about potential QEP topics for improving student learning and outcomes. 

What is a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)?

A Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) focuses on improving student learning outcomes (SLOs) and/or student success over a five-year period of time. Through a process that will engage a variety of stakeholder voices, FSCJ will select a topic that will allow the institution to reflect on and affirm our commitment to student success for its diverse student body. The QEP will be designed to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue that the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success.

Timeline for the QEP

The QEP Process

The QEP  is an integral part of the SACSCOC reaffirmation of accreditation of educational programs for the College.

The QEP is derived from the College's ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes. Our QEP will be informed by the following components as prescribed in the SACSCOC Resource Manual for the Principles of Accreditation (Standard 7.2):

QEP Process Factors

Factor 1: A QEP topic is identified and selected  through the College's ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes

  1. The topic will focus on a course of action informed by data and our comprehensive planning process that focuses on improving student success and/or student learning outcomes. The topic will support the mission of the institution.

Factor 2: Ensure broad-based support of institutional constituencies

  1. All College stakeholders, including students, will have the opportunity to guide the selection and implementation of the QEP topic.

Factor 3: Focus on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success

  1. Student learning outcomes are those that identify the specific knowledge, skills, behaviors, and/or attitudes/values student should be able to demonstrate.

Factor 4: Commit resources to initiate, implement, and complete the QEP

  1. Resources are not limited to budget dollars and should include consideration of the following: human resources, operating expenses, physical resources, assessment tools, faculty and/or staff development, etc.

Factor 5: Include a plan to assess achievement

  1. The expectation is to create a plan that identifies meaningful data to measure student learning outcomes. The plan should include timelines, multiple and varied measures, and an explanation of the system used to collect, process, and report the data.

Please review the VIP 2.0 Goal Areas To Foster Ideas

A new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) can potentially help FSCJ improve student outcomes by concentrating one program toward supporting a goal within FSCJ's VIP 2.0 Plan. Please review the VIP 2.0 Plan below and consider sharing an idea that you believe will make the biggest positive impact on student outcomes and supports an existing goal.
