Quality Enhancement Plan

Development of QEP II

Lamar University is in the process of developing its second Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). Our first QEP, Active and Collaborative Engagement for Students (ACES), ended in 2014 and has been successfully integrated into CTLE programming as a new faculty support program called SMART under the leadership of Dr. Amy Smith.

The QEP is a SACSCOC accreditation initiative aimed at improving the quality of student learning. As such, the development of the QEP must be driven by the University community. To achieve such broad-based participation, the development process for QEP II involves a team of talented faculty, staff, students and alumni committed to ensuring a quality and innovative educational experience for our students. This team includes the QEP Steering CommitteeQEP Outreach Committee, and QEP Assessment Committee

              *Connect with colleagues across campus over shared teaching concerns and goals
              *Contribute to Lamar University's educational innovation
