Quality Enhancement Plan

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is an integral component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process and is derived from an institution’s ongoing comprehensive planning and evaluation processes. It reflects and affirms a commitment to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success.​

We want your feedback.  The IE/QEP Steering Committee has chosen four topics and would like your input as to the specific topic we should choose for our QEP.  Please navigate to the survey by clicking on the following link:
