Call for Concept Submissions
Auburn University’s SACS Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
Auburn University invites you to make a Concept Submission outlining your suggestion for a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). Development of a QEP is a required component of the reaffirmation of Auburn’s accreditation by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, scheduled for 2013. SACS defines the QEP as a “carefully designed and focused course of action that addresses a well-defined topic or issues directly related to improving student learning.” Plans should be part of the university’s ongoing planning and evaluation process. Auburn’s QEP project will commence in 2013, with a full report due to SACS in 2018. While the budget for the QEP is yet to be determined, the project is expected to have a significant scope and must be supported by a workable plan, including adequate resources.
