Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)

Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)

As part of NOVA’s reaffirmation process, we must develop a Quality Enhancement Plan that:

  1. has a topic identified through its ongoing comprehensive planning and evaluation processes;
  2. has broad-based support of institutional constituencies;
  3. focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success; and
  4. includes a plan to assess achievement.

This is an opportunity for NOVA to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by increasing student achievement in a single, critical area.
