The university has started developing its new Quality Enhancement Plan, an important part of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools reaccreditation process.

The QEP is intended to help UT become a better university by focusing on an issue critical to improving student learning.

The QEP team—chaired by Matthew Theriot, associate professor in the College of Social Work—has developed five potential QEP topics. Feedback from the campus community will help shape one of these topics into the university’s new QEP. These proposed projects focus on classroom instruction, research, and other activities at UT, so the campus encourages you to be part of the QEP development process.

This week faculty, staff, and students will receive an e-mail with a survey about the five potential topics.

Tonight begins a series of forums where faculty, staff, and graduate students can discuss the proposed topics with members of the QEP team:

  • November 18: 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Hodges Library Lindsay Young Auditorium
  • December 3: 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. in the University Center Shiloh Room
  • December 11: 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. in the University Center Shiloh Room
  • December 16: 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. in the University Center Shiloh Room

Similar forums are being held for undergraduate students.
