According to SACSCOC, The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) describes a course of action for enhancing educational quality. Specifically, SACSCOC calls for an institution to develop an acceptable QEP that focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning. Further, when developing a QEP, an institution should be mindful of identifying goals and having a clear plan on how to assess their achievement. Texas Tech University (TTU) is in a unique position as one of the first institutions working on the development of the second QEP. This session looks at how the QEP topic selection process changed from Tech’s first QEP to the second QEP, the data collection and analysis utilized during topic selection, and an overview of the current status of the second QEP at TTU.
