QEP Charge

Charge to Quality Enhancement Plan Team 

UT’s QEP team will develop a plan that complies with expectations of the SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement. The team will engage the university community in selecting and developing a topic that focuses on the improvement of student learning outcomes. Several sub-teams will be responsible for various report sections.

The QEP will build on and expand campus conversations that have focused around Vol Vision/Top 25 during the past two years. In addition, the team should review other reports related to student learning that have been developed by faculty, student, and administrative groups in the past two years. These include the report of the general education taskforce, the white paper by the student forum on learning, the taskforce on the sophomore experience, etc.

The QEP team should use a participatory and evidence-based process to aid in selecting and developing the university’s new QEP.
