Quality Enhancement Plan

By requiring accredited institutions to develop a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) emphasizes its commitment to advancing the quality of higher education. The QEP affirms the SACSCOC belief that student learning is central to the mission of all higher education institutions. According to the SACSCOC, "the QEP describes a carefully designed course of action that addresses a well-defined and focused topic or issue related to enhancing student learning. The QEP should be embedded within the institution's ongoing integrated institution-wide planning and evaluation process."

Whereas the Compliance Certification Report provides a snapshot of past and present practices at the University, the Quality Enhancement Plan points to the future.

Call for QEP Topic Proposals

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Committee is requesting proposals on how to improve upon any aspect of the educational experience at the University of North Alabama (UNA).  These proposals must identiy and provide justification for the selection of a topic.  From these proposals, three will be selected for further development and consideration as the QEP topic for the decennial application.  Once the final topic is selected, the QEP Committee will submit the fully developed plan to SACSCOC in 2022.  The plan will be implemented shortly after.
