NLC College Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
NLC has developed a QEP plan that identifies and targets for improvement a key aspect of our student's educational experience responding to SACSCOC Core Requirement 2.12 and SACSCOC Comprehensive Standard 3.3.2.
Core Requirement 2.12 requires, among other things, an institution to develop a plan for increasing the effectiveness of some aspect of its educational program relating to student learning and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution.
Comprehensive Standard 3.3.2 mandates that the institution demonstrates the institutional capability for completion of the QEP, involve institutional constituencies in both planning and implementation of the QEP and establish goals an assessment plan. These requirements launch a process that can move an institution into a future characterized by the development and/or modification of creative, engaging, and meaningful learning experiences for students.
The final QEP will 1) embody an institutional process for identifying key issues emerging from institutional assessment, 2) identify a significant issue that focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplish the College mission, 3) show evidence of institutional capability for the initiation, implementation, and completion of the Plan, 4) includes broad-based involvement of institutional constituencies and 5) identify goals and a plan to assess the achievement of those goals.
As part of our commitment to student success, Northeast Lakeview College has been developing a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) focused on creating a first-year experience course that will help students develop skills to navigate curricular, career, and life experiences.
