Quality Enhancement Plan

QEP Logo

What is QEP?

The “Guiding Persistence to Success (#GPS) Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is designed to strengthen progression to completion rates. The QEP is a five-year, university-wide quality improvement plan focusing on student success. We will accomplish this through five strategies progress reports, advising model, study tables, peer mentoring, and course redesign.

 

Why are we creating the QEP?

Every ten years, all regionally accredited colleges and universities engage in the renewal of their institution’s accreditation. As part of the reaffirmation of accreditation process, every SACSCOC institution is required to develop a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) which “identifies key issues emerging from institutional assessment and focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution.”  ASU’s QEP Topic, “Guiding Persistence to Success (GPS)”, is designed to strengthen progression to completion rates. The QEP is a five-year, university-wide quality improvement plan focusing on student success. We will accomplish this through five strategies progress reports, advising model, study tables, peer mentoring, and course redesign.

 

QEP Goals:

  • Goal 1: Encourage student progression through courses and degree programs.
  • Goal 2: Strengthen graduation rates.
