Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)

Quality Enhancement Plan

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) requires each institution undergoing reaffirmation of accreditation to submit a Quality Enhancement Plan. The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a document developed by the institution that describes a course of action for institutional improvement that is directly related to student learning and crucial to enhancing educational quality.

Beacon College has chosen the Paul/Elder model for teaching critical thinking because it is clear, concise, and relevant to the needs of our special mission. This approach has resulted in improved critical thinking, not only in the educational domain, but also in everyday reasoning.


College Community Involvement in QEP

The faculty, students, and staff of Beacon College explored many possibilities for the QEP. With input from the whole campus community, Beacon College selected critical thinking skill development as the focus of our QEP. We believe educating students with learning disabilities to think critically is the essence of the mission and philosophy of Beacon College. It demonstrates the College’s commitment to creating a learning environment that enhances the opportunities of our graduates in the workplace while assisting them in realizing their potential.
