Quality Enhancement Plan
In accordance with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Core Principle 2.12 and Comprehensive Standard 3.3.2, Queens University of Charlotte has selected a topic for our Quality Enhancement Plan through a broad-based topic selection process that identified key issues emerging from institutional assessment, focused on student learning, and ensured a close connection to the Queens mission and values statements. We have the institutional capability to address this topic, and the plan will involve a wide variety of constituents from across the university. The Queens University Quality Enhancement Plan evolved from a two year process, involving narrowing the options from hundreds of topic selections to twenty contenders, to three white papers, and then, to a final topic. Extensive discussion, surveys, and institutional research formed the basis for the topic selection process at Queens.
The Queens University of Charlotte Quality Enhancement Plan focuses on faculty-student interaction. The QEP proposes several intentional structures and curricular changes to enhance interactions between faculty and students in two main areas - Teaching and Inquiry. These two branches of the plan will enable the institution to strengthen its focus on excellence in teaching and significantly increase research opportunities for both faculty and students.
