Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Assessment
The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a component of the reaffirmation process, which reflects the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges’ (SACSCOC) commitment to enhancing the quality of higher education by focusing attention on student learning and success. Every institution is expected to embed the QEP within its ongoing, institution-wide planning and evaluation process, which may evolve from the existing process or from other processes related to the institution’s internal reaffirmation review.
Developing the Quality Enhancement Plan presents an institution with the opportunity to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue or issues of importance to the institution for improving student learning. In SACSCOC’s Principles of Accreditation, Standard 7.2 requires an institution to develop an acceptable Quality Enhancement Plan as an integral part of the reaffirmation process.
For Radford University’s upcoming 2023 accreditation reaffirmation, the QEP development process is currently in progress. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Quality Improvement assists the QEP initiative with its assessment efforts.
Please visit the detailed QEP page for more information about the development and organization of Radford University’s 2023 Quality Enhancement Plan.
