The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Topic Development Team Members (formed in 2015)

In order to create a QEP that focuses on student learning and meets the other SACSCOC requirements, a QEP Topic Development Team was established to identify several viable QEP topics via input from our STC stakeholders and community. All QEP Teams have included broad representation every College, including faculty, staff, and students. Community members have also been instrumental on the QEP Teams.
