In the 2018-2019 academic year, members of the Freed-Hardeman University community will be working to select a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) topic. The university community is undertaking this work because of its commitment to improving the educational experience at FHU and to comply with SACSCOC expectations for reaffirmation.The intention of this work is to select a topic that addresses needs which are articulated by the campus community and are identified through analysis of collected data.
"The Quality Enhancement Plan is an integral component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process and is derived from an institution’s ongoing comprehensive planning and evaluation processes. It reflects and affirms a commitment to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue that the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success.
The institution has a Quality Enhancement Plan that
(a) has a topic identified through its ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes;
(b) has broad-based support of institutional constituencies;
(c) focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success;
(d) commits resources to initiate, implement and complete the QEP; and
(e) includes a plan to assess achievement."
