is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC). We will be considered for “Reaffirmation of Accreditation” in 2019.  The Accreditation Process is governed by the Principles of Accreditation published by SACS-COC.  The Reaffirmation process requires that the College provide evidence that it complies with the Core Requirements and Comprehensive Standards specified in the Principles of Accreditation through a Compliance Certification.  Principles of Accreditation can be found on the SACS-COC website at the following link.  .

What is the QEP?

In addition to a Compliance Certification, the Principles of Accreditation requires each college to prepare a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) as part of the reaffirmation process (Core Requirement 7: 7.2). The Quality Enhancement Plan is a "course of action that addresses a well-defined and focused topic or issue related to enhancing student learning and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution". The requirement to have a QEP not only satisfies an accreditation requirement, it will provide an excellent opportunity for to specifically address a vital student learning issue in order to enhance student success.

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a document developed by the institution that:

  1. includes a process identifying key issues emerging from institutional assessment,
  2. focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution,
  3. demonstrates institutional capability for the initiation, implementation, and completion of the QEP,
  4. includes broad-based involvement of institutional constituencies in the development and proposed implementation of the QEP, and
  5. identifies goals and a plan to assess their achievement.

During the May 7, 2018 meeting, it was proposed that the () Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) topic will be “ROAD to Success: Revitalizing Orientation, Advising, and Development of Faculty.
