Quality Enhancement Plan

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is an important part of Coastal Carolina University's (CCU) reaffirmation of accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The QEP is described in standard 7.2:

The institution has a QEP 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.

What is the QEP?

The Belong@Coastal: Building Student Achievement Through Inclusive Engagement is a five-year, university-wide Quality Engagement Plan (QEP). It will run from 2022-2027.

Why do we have the QEP?

As part of the reaffirmation of the accreditation process, every SACSCOC institution is required to develop a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) which “identifies key issues emerging from institutional assessment and focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution.”
