Call for proposals for a new QEP topic
by Cindy Venable - Tuesday, 25 October 2016, 8:48 AM

Dear Students,


Every 10 years, as part of our reaffirmation of accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), SUNO has the opportunity to develop a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) to improve an area of student learning or student success in a significant way through a university-wide, multi-year initiative. As a member of our University community, you are invited to participate in the topic selection process for our next QEP.

During the course of the first five-years of the reaffirmation process (2010 - 2015), the university developed and implemented a QEP titled; E-Focused! Enhancing Student Learning in Online Courses by Improving Institutional Readiness in which the university tried to address student readiness for online learning by focusing on their technical competence in introductory Biology and English courses. In the report that was submitted to SACSCOC, the University described it goals and intended outcomes, impact on student learning and/or the environment supporting student learning and described what the institution has learned as a result of the QEP experience. This report was approved without any further recommendation.

With SACSCOC approval of SUNO’s previous QEP without any further recommendations, the development of another five-year Quality Enhancement Plan is a key component of the institutions  2020 SACSCOC reaffirmation of accreditation process.


Please submit your ideas or proposal using the attached [Ideas%20index%20card%20info%20(002).docx]suggestion card  electronically to or you may submit a hard copy to the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Room 126 ( Bashful Admin Bldg). All submissions are due by 5:00 pm, Friday, November 4, 2016.
