About the QEP

Every ten years, member institutions of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) must undergo a comprehensive review in order to maintain accreditation. This process includes the submission of a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) which has been identified through the institution’s ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation process, has broad-based support at the institution, focuses on improving student learning outcomes and/or student success outcomes and has a plan to assess achievement. In April of this year, the proposal “Core Skills for Success: Preparing Graduates for Lifelong Achievement” was adopted for the Quality Enhancement Process, which will prepare a QEP that will be submitted as part of Mississippi University for Women’s comprehensive review for reaccreditation.

The adopted QEP will focus on enhancing student learning and student success by incorporating a university-wide effort to monitor and improve student interpersonal, critical thinking, and written & spoken communication skills as well as providing a comprehensive array of experiential learning opportunities to prepare students for success in their chosen careers or further educational pursuits. This supports the University’s stated mission to “enhance student development and achievement as a platform for lifelong education and growth.” The implementation of the plan will involve three major components: (1) Enhanced support for faculty incorporating core skills pedagogy into academic coursework across the university, (2) Co-curricular programming to promote and reinforce interpersonal skills and (3) Comprehensive monitoring and promotion of career-focused experiential learning opportunities for students, along with monitoring of university graduate career placement and/or enrollment in graduate school.

The stated goal and outcomes for this QEP are:

Goal: To produce graduates who are prepared for a competitive marketplace and to succeed over the course of their professional lives.

  • Students will demonstrate effective critical thinking and communication skills appropriate to their discipline and be able to communicate their value to potential employers.
  • Students will have the opportunity to engage in real world experiences, such as internships, experiential learning, or service learning.
  • Students will exhibit the ability to present themselves as a professional and engage with others in a professional environment.
