14 Quality Enhancement Plan Rose Duhon-Sells, PhD Professor of Education Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Chair, QEP Task Force

15 The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Task Force for SACS was constituted in Spring, 2006. The committee members of the Task Force were as follows: Dr. Rose Duhon-Sells, Chair Dr. James Takona Dr. Adnan Omar Dr. Sudipta Das Dr. William Belisle Dr. Ira Neighbors Ms. Stacy Thomas

16 In Fall, 2006 the committee shared at the Faculty Conference a possible topic for the SACS/QEP Task Force which was: Improving student learning through First Time Freshmen Experiences. All faculty members were given the opportunity to participate through a survey disseminated by the QEP Task Force at the Fall, 2006 Faculty Conference. Based on the input from faculty campus-wide, the committee modified the topic and included four strains: E-Learning, Lifelong Learning, Student Support Services and Individualized Attention in Teaching and Learning. QEP

17 At the end of Spring, 2007, the committee decided to re-focus the topic and narrow it down to attaining academic excellence by improving retention. During the Summer, 2007 we were fortunate to have Dr. Rudy Jackson, the SACS liaison for SUNO, to meet with the QEP Task Force Committee to assist in narrowing the focus of the QEP topic, resulting in proposing a revised QEP topic as another phase in the process of developing the perfect QEP topic to improve student learning in our institution: The current proposed QEP Topic: “Enhancing First Year Freshmen Student Learning with E-Learning” Please provide your suggestions and comments to the topic on the yellow survey given with your packet. QEP
