GRU begins Quality Enhancement Plan process

Georgia Regents University has begun the process to develop a QEP, or Quality Enhancement Plan. A QEP is a proposal to enhance student learning in a specific, measurable way. Development of a QEP is required to maintain our accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Our current accreditation expires in December 2016, and the reaffirmation of our accreditation will be partly determined by the approval of a QEP that is compliant with SACSCOC standards.

The QEP will need to be prepared by January 2016. The first QEP Core Team has been appointed by Provost Caughman to develop and facilitate this process, which will include a variety of assessment methods and a call for proposals that invites participation from faculty, staff, and students across the educational programs and academic support units.

A QEP advances our key priority: optimum student access and well-being. Its real value is that it’s an opportunity for us to identify areas for improvement, build on our strengths and deliver the best education outcomes for our students. Identifying and implementing an effective QEP is a great way for us to pull together as a university and aspire to greatness together as we pursue goals we all share.
