SACSCOC Quality Enhancement Plan
A new requirement from SACSCOC for reaffirmation of HBU's accreditation is the submission of an acceptable Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP. From the 2008 SACS Principles of Accreditation:
2.12 The institution has developed an acceptable Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) that (1) includes a broad-based institutional process identifying key issues emerging from institutional assessment, (2) focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution, (3) demonstrates institutional capability for the initiation, implementation, and completion of the QEP, (4) includes broad-based involvement of institutional constituencies in the development and proposed implementation of the QEP, and (5) identifies goals and a plan to assess their achievement.

The University has selected student writing as the topic of its QEP.
