Quality Enhancement Plan

As part of the reaffirmation of accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools-Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC), TTUHSC must develop and implement a Quality Enhancement Plan embodying "a comprehensive and thorough analysis of the effectiveness of the learning environment for supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution." [1] TTUHSC has developed a Quality Enhancement Plan which has been submitted and will be reviewed during the SACS onsite visit in April, 2009. The plan

  • includes a broad-based institutional process identifying key issues emerging from institutional assessment;
  • focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution;
  • demonstrates institutional capability for the initiation, implementation, and completion of the QEP;
  • includes broad-based involvement of institutional constituencies in the development and proposed implementation of the QEP; and
  • identifies goals and a plan to assess their achievement. [2]
  • Beyond mere compliance with this SACS mandate, however, the QEP offers the opportunity to come together as an institution and bring about an important, far-reaching, and long-lasting improvement in the academic achievements of our students.
