Campus Broadcast – February 2017 – 

This year marks the beginning of a three-year process to reaffirm Georgia State University’s accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). A central component of that process is the development of a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The QEP is a unique opportunity to promote student learning at Georgia State. We are all familiar with – and proud of – Georgia State’s previous QEP, Critical Thinking through Writing, which has done so much to transform the undergraduate educational experience.

As a first step in the preparation of the new QEP, the university is soliciting ideas for potential topics. Members of the Georgia State community are invited to participate in this process. If you have an idea for a QEP topic or would like to know more about the QEP, visit our QEP website at

According to SACSCOC, the QEP should focus on “learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution.” Proposals for topics that promise to enhance student learning across all Georgia State campuses are welcome. Submissions will be accepted at the topic proposal submission portal ( until April 1.

John Duffield, Director of Assessment and Review for the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, will be the QEP coordinator. For questions about the topic selection process, contact him at [email protected]

Thank you for your interest in and support of the QEP development process. We look forward to receiving your topic proposals and the preparation of an exciting new QEP.
