EMCC employees to develop new Quality Enhancement Plan

Release date: Aug. 7, 2014


East Mississippi Community College is calling on its employees to help develop the specifics of a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).


A Quality Enhancement Plan is part of the reaffirmation of accreditation that EMCC must undergo every 10 years to retain its membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSOC). A well-designed QEP is a careful, focused course of action that addresses a well-defined topic related to enhancing student learning.


The winning QEP topic chosen in the spring after employees responded to an internal survey was:


Advising with emphasis on placement,

degree planning, career planning,
transfer counseling


According to Susan Morgan, EMCC’s SACSCOC Liaison, the new QEP challenges EMCC employees to develop practical, down-to-earth ways to help students develop successful plans for navigating toward educational and employment goals.


EMCC’s QEP Leadership Team issued a Call for Proposals to employees during the college’s annual Convocation of faculty and staff, held Aug. 7 at the college's Golden Triangle campus.

 EMCC students take part in an exercise called "Crossing Alligator Swamp," in which a group of people must cross a wide expanse of ground together, using nothing but three planks and three crates. It was part of EMCC's last successful Quality Enhancement Plan, which sought to teach students problem-solving through teamwork.
