QEP 2023

Clemson University will launch a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) in 2023 to impact student learning and/or student success. 

SACSCOC Standard 7.2 reads: The institution has a Quality Enhancement Plan that (a) has a topic identified through its ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes; (b) has broad-based support of institutional constituencies; (c) focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success; (d) commits resources to initiate, implement, and complete the QEP; and (e) includes a plan to assess achievement.  

As we develop our plan, this page serves as a communication to our Clemson University stakeholders of where we are in the process and how you can continue to be informed and involved.

2022: Project Planning Phase, Continued

In July 2022, a QEP Update was presented to the Board Of Trustees at their quarterly meeting by Provost Jones.

A working QEP Retreat was held June 10, 2022 to begin the transformation of the topic to a strategically-oriented and tactical plan. This retreat brought together our QEP Leadership, staff, faculty, administrative leadership, current students, and University alumni. Our aim was to achieve a broad representation of stakeholders across campus (and outside of campus), and secure diverse insight, feedback, and wisdom on our proposed topic and tactical options.

2021-2022: Project Planning Phase

Working with 4 subcommittees and a steering committee, we will be developing our intended topic into a full plan.

2020-2021: Exploratory Phase

A team met over the academic year to collect and analyze 15 data sets on student learning and success. They discussed with broad stakeholders, elicited feedback from the campus, and created an internal 25-page summary and topic suggestion.

2019-2020: Initiation Phase

Academic and shared governance leaders created the overview and timeline for the QEP process. (*Note: COVID-19 necessitated a redirection of personnel to academic and business continuity, so our timeline necessarily shifted.)
