The university needs your help in formulating its new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), an important part of UT’s reaffirmation of accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

A QEP is a carefully designed campus-wide project that has a primary emphasis on undergraduate students. This will be UT’s second QEP; the first was Ready for the World, a broad plan aimed at increasing international and intercultural awareness and knowledge across campus.

Last week, you received an e-mail survey asking you to share your thoughts on five proposed topics for UT’s new QEP. These topics were developed by the QEP team, chaired by Matthew Theriot, associate professor in the College of Social Work. For each topic, the survey provides a brief description, a list of potential actions, and a summary of how the topic links to the Vol Vision/Top 25 strategic plan. It gives you three question to answer and provides space for comments.

If you’ve already completed the online survey, thank you. If not, please look for it in your inbox and complete it. The e-mail—which probably arrived in your inbox on Thursday, November 21, or Friday, November 22—came from “Quality Enhancement Plan Team” with the subject “Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Input Survey.”

If you can’t find the e-mail, you can access the survey from the Provost’s SACS Accreditation website.
