QEP Development Background

Development of the 

2026-2031 Quality Enhancement Plan

The QEP Topic Selection Committee is inviting the university community to participate in the process of selecting the topic for Tennessee Tech University's next Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) for the period 2026-2031. The information provided below offers background and context for the development of this plan.


As part of the 2026 SACSCOC Reaffirmation effort, Tennessee Tech is required to create and implement an institution-wide plan aimed at improving either student learning or student success. These multi-year plans are known as Quality Enhancement Plans (QEPs), and the 2026-2031 QEP will mark the university's third such endeavor. When developing a QEP, the institution must adhere to the components outlined in SACSCOC Standard 7.2.

The institution has a Quality Enhancement Plan that:

a) has a topic identified through its ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes;

b) has broad-based support of institutional constituencies;

c) focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success;

d) commits resources to initiate, implement, and complete the QEP;e) includes a plan to assess achievement.
