Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)

A Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a required part of our reaffirmation process with the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges (SACSCOC). It presents an opportunity for the College to identify one of its most pressing student learning needs and develop a well-crafted plan to address that need.

For our previous reaffirmation process in 2005, Isothermal focused on improving the general education competencies and developed a strategy in capture learning in portfolios. The portfolio has and continues to be a key part of an Isothermal student’s learning experience. For 2015, the College is planning a learning environment focused QEP called "Start Strong...Finish Stronger." Its goal is to educate, engage, and empower first-time college students to achieve successful college completion through orientation and educational planning.

The QEP process engages every aspect and every member of learning college. It represents a significant opportunity to focus creative energy and institutional resources on improving student learning outcomes.
