The Eagle Eye Staff
As part of the university’s re-accreditation process with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), a regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southern states, a faculty committee preparing Reinhardt’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is seeking feedback from students.
Earlier this week, all undergraduate students were emailed a request to complete a survey. The results from that survey will be used to help develop the school’s QEP proposal that is a meticulously crafted plan outlining a specific topic or issue that will be addressed to help enhance student learning. Reinhardt’s last QEP resulted in the creation of the school’s First Year Seminar course, which, according to the university’s catalog, “introduces first-year students to Reinhardt University through activities that intentionally promote active learning and the enhancement of those critical reading and thinking skills essential for academic success.”
Completing this survey is a valuable opportunity for students to provide input during this important process. Dr. Katrina Smith, Assistant Professor of Psychology and a faculty chair of the QEP Committee explained, “As a committee, we are working diligently to develop a plan that results in a positive impact for as many students as possible. We need the help of students in this process. Simply completing the survey gives the committee valuable insights into the educational needs of Reinhardt students.”
All undergraduate students have been encouraged to complete the survey before the Sept. 7 deadline.
A copy of the email sent to students is below.
Dear Reinhardt Students:
As part of Reinhardt University’s re-accreditation process, a faculty committee is developing a new Quality Enhancement Plan—the QEP. The plan the committee adopts will provide a new and exciting dimension to the education of Reinhardt students over the next several years.
The QEP committee solicited proposals from faculty over the summer, and now we would like your help in evaluating the proposals we have received.
If you are willing to help us, please complete the 10-minute QEP Topic Selection Survey by September 7. The survey can be accessed at this link:
In the survey, you will be encouraged to suggest a topic that is not included in the proposed list of QEP topics.
