Brevard College Faculty and Staff have been meeting and planning all summer long for the future of the college.
As a part of its 10-year SACSCOC accreditation review in 2020-21, the College must submit a “Quality Enhancement Plan” to be carried out over five years. The College will report on the activities and results of the plan in its 5-year review in 2025-26.
What is QEP? “The Quality Enhancement Plan 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 that the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success. The document submitted by the institution demonstrates that its QEP (a) has a topic identified through its ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes; (b) has broad-based support of institutional constituencies; (c) focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success; (d) commits resources to initiate, implement and complete the QEP; and (e) includes a plan to assess achievement.”
Over the next two years, sessions will be conducted with Faculty and Staff to generate ideas on how to better improve learning outcomes and student success.
So let the brainstorming begin!
Brevard College is committed to an experiential liberal arts education that encourages personal growth and inspires artistic, intellectual, and social action.
