Quality Enhancement Plan
The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), required in conjunction with the Compliance Certification Report, must be submitted six weeks prior to the on-site review. The comprehensive document is:
- A topic identified through ongoing, comprehensive and evaluation processes,
- Has a broad-based support of institutional constituencies,
- Focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student successes,
- Commits resources to initiate, implement The Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement 9 and complete the QEP, and
