what is a qep
What is a QEP?
  • A multi-year, campus-wide process to study and improve student learning at UNCW
  • The topic will focus on a specific aspect of student learning
  • The topic will emerge from systematically exploring our students strengths and areas needing development, with input from students, faculty, administration, and staff
  • The QEP must be feasible and measurable using accepted assessment methods
  • The QEP must be supported by the University with funds devoted to (faculty) professional development.
  • A crucial component of our reaccreditation process for 2013
what the qep means to our re accreditation
What the QEP means to our Re-accreditation
  • awarded by SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), through their peer-review process.
