To fulfill the SACSCOC core requirement and comprehensive standard below, Walters State must develop an acceptable Quality Enhancement Plan as part of our reaffirmation for accreditation.
All of Walters State’s constituents are involved in selecting the QEP topic. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, program advisory boards, secondary partners, and the community are examples of just a few of the groups whose opinions will be integrated into topic selection.
The QEP Development Team will survey the aforementioned groups and also conduct focus groups on each campus site with students, faculty, and staff. Based on these results, five to seven possible areas for improvement will be chosen. After, they will be ranked by these groups to narrow down to a final four. A call for proposals on the final four topics will be given and, finally, our QEP topic will be chosen!
The QEP Development Team plans to have the new QEP topic selected by April 2016.
Everyone at Walters State is involved in the Quality Enhancement Plan! Once the topic is chosen, you should be aware of the chosen topic and participate in activities related to the QEP. Make sure to be on the lookout for QEP news and activities.
The SACSCOC On-Site Committee will visit Walters State in fall 2017.
