Quality Enhancement Plan

As an important part of our reaffirmation of accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), Valdosta State University is in the process of developing a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) for 2021-2026, as described in Principle 7.2:

The institution has a QEP that (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.

Determining and Developing a QEP for 2021-2026

On October 25, 2019, Provost Bob Smith charged a committee of faculty and staff to determine and develop a QEP for 2021-2026. VSU's prior QEP, Undergraduate Engagement in Discipline-Based Inquiry, provided students with focused opportunities for engaging with faculty in research and scholarly activities appropriate to the discipline. We are excited to build upon the success of this QEP while incorporating goals from VSU's Strategic Plan. 

Brief Description of VSU’s QEP, QEP Goals, and QEP in the News

The QEP Development Committee is actively meeting during the 2019-20 academic year. We invite your input and will be holding focus groups with many stakeholders in Spring 2020.
