Research, Literature Review, Best Practices and Writing Sub-Committee

The QEP Sub-Committee, comprised of faculty, and staff from a variety of different disciplines and areas of expertise, was formed to oversee the development of the Quality Enhancement Plan. Specifically, the sub-committee is charged with the following responsibilities:

  • Review best practices of other institutions in collaboration with the other sub-committees, as appropriate. This may include a site visit to other institutions, conference or workshop attendance.
  • Align to the College’s goals and strategic planning processes.
  • Demonstrate evidence of need and ensure the QEP provides evidence of systematic analysis of the institutional context in which goals will be implemented.
  • Write sections of the QEP, in collaboration with relevant sub-committees.
  • Research potential external QEP Evaluators in consultation with the QEP Director, Steering Committee Co-chairs, and SACSCOC Liaison.
  • Prepare the Executive Summary to be submitted with the QEP.
  • Record minutes of all meetings and file with OIEP.
  • Provide monthly updates to the Steering Committee.
