Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) 2015-2020
Broad QEP Theme & Next Steps
The QEP Topic Selection Committee has recommended a theme for the 2015-2020 Quality Enhancement Plan. The QEP project will address an aspect of Communication in a Global Society. Texas Tech is now assembling the committee that will work on preparing the proposal to be submitted to SACSCOC. The committee will include people who have been working in various areas of global communication.
What is a QEP?
According to SACSCOC guidelines, a QEP should:
- Contribute to the improvement of student learning or to the environment for student learning;
- Emerge from an institutional process that identifies key issues emerging from institutional assessment;
- Be based on demonstrated need or opportunity to improve student learning that can be supported by data;
- Be linked to the university strategic plan and/or mission;
- Be focused and assessable;
- Not be narrowly targeted toward a small or isolated subset of the Texas Tech University student body;
- Have the support of students, faculty, and other stakeholder groups that may be involved in its implementation.
Didn't Tech just do a QEP?
Yes, Texas Tech's first QEP was from 2005-2010. This first QEP, titled, "Do the Right Thing: A Campus Conversation on Ethics" focused on learning related to ethical issues on campus and supported the university mission statement. The first QEP focused on three key areas – the ethical institution, academic integrity, and ethics in the curriculum and was aimed at increasing campus learning and commitment to ethical behavior and issues.
