BRISTOL, Tenn., Jan 24, 2018 – You may have heard mentioned around King University’s
campuses the term QEP, and wondered what it is and why it should be important to you.
QEP stands for Quality Enhancement Plan, and it is an evolving, perpetual, student-centric
plan focused on the improvement of students’ academic writing.
King University is dedicated to having a quality, rigorous academic foundation enabling
and empowering students to develop skills to be successful both academically and in
future endeavors including graduate school and their careers. Additionally, an extraordinarily
important piece of the accreditation guidelines is that, with broad-based involvement,
King will maintain, execute, measure, and progress the Quality Enhancement Plan. King’s
regional accreditation is by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission
on Colleges (SACSCOC), the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting
higher education institutions in the Southern states.
“The QEP process will continue to evolve over time; there isn’t a finish line for
the Quality Enhancement Plan. The path may change over the years as we collect data,
assess, and revise; however, the QEP will remain an integral part of King’s academics,”
said Rhonda Morgan, RN, DNP, MSN, associate professor for King’s School of Nursing
and chair of the QEP marketing/communication sub-committee.
Julie McReynolds, assistant dean of Student Engagement, said, “Students will be participating
in focus groups, providing feedback on the program. There are several sub-committees
working on different aspects of the implementation of the plan; students have a presence
in each of these groups in a formal structure.”
“If someone at King was asked, ‘What is QEP,’ they will be able to respond: ‘to improve
students’ writing ability in the classroom, and secondarily, to improve writing experiences
outside the classroom,” said Morgan.
