Help Emory select a Quality Enhancement Plan topic

Emory is preparing for its reaffirmation of accreditation review in 2014 by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Among the reports the University is required to submit is a Quality Enhancement Plan, which will address a well-defined topic related to enhancing undergraduate education and chart a course of action for implementation.

A university-wide effort that Emory's SACS leaders say is the most creative part of the reaffirmation process, professors Sarah McPhee and Eric Weeks are leading the campus-wide process of identifying a theme for the Quality Enhancement Plan.

McPhee and Weeks are currently seeking suggestions from students, staff and alumni, in addition to input from faculty.

"We expect that the QEP will find some aspect of education that we're already doing well and help Emory do it even better. Potentially the QEP topic could help define what is unique and special about an Emory education," say Weeks and McPhee.

Examples of possible topics include ethics, quantitative literacy, world view, primary evidence, creativity and the arts, engaged learning and sustainability.

The Quality Enhancement Plan is due late 2013-early 2014 for review in 2014. 

Help Emory decide on a QEP topic by the end of the semester. Email comments and suggestions to Sarah McPhee and Eric Weeks by Nov. 1.
