Quality Enhancement Plan
The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a carefully designed course of action that addresses a well-defined and focused challenge related to enhancing student learning, and is part of the reaffirmation of accreditation process with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Central Piedmont Community College’s (CPCC) mission statement and first strategic goal emphasize the importance of keeping student success as the central focus of College initiatives; therefore, the mission and the first strategic goal are the driving forces behind CPCC’s Quality Enhancement Plan to aid in the success of first-year, full-time curriculum students.
Improving First-Year Student Success
By concentrating on student success during their first academic year, the QEP seeks to assist students in building skills and utilizing resources that they can draw upon to successfully achieve their academic goals. The focus areas of the QEP are:
- Early intervention for those first-year students who are in academic jeopardy
- Improvement of student/faculty/staff communication during the student’s first year
- Assistance in student development of strategies for successful college completion
- Development of academic plans for student utilization during their second semester at CPCC
