Quality Enhancement Plan


Quality Enhancement Plan

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a key component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process required by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools - Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).  In conjunction with the 2015 reaffirmation process, Collin College's QEP theme is

"There's a Map For That!"

The QEP focuses on helping students take charge of their own educational journey with guidance from faculty coaches, advising professionals, and integrated software.

The status of each QEP initiative is as follows:

  • The Advising Space Redesign has overall improved the advising environment for staff and students. As a result of the redesign, the advising experience has been more efficient, private, and beneficial for students.
  • The revised Advising Syllabus continues to be used as an academic planning tool. The advising syllabus is available upon request in the advising centers and in the Academic Planning Coach Program.
  • The Clear Pathways initiative outlines four steps to registration and channels students through an appropriate pathway as soon as they start their college career at Collin College. This format is displayed on the Collin College homepage and provides a user-friendly way to navigate the enrollment process for prospective and current students.
  • CougarCompass continues to provide students access to a user-friendly system that allows them to track their own progress. This helpful tool empowers students to track and plan their courses towards degree completion!

Now, in our fifth year of the QEP, the team is transitioning the Academic Planning Coach Program towards integration within the college. This year the following changes will help ensure a successful integration:

  • Faculty Recruitment, Coordination, and Communication will be led in coordination with by three Faculty Coach Liaisons.
  • Student Recruitment, Coordination, and Communication will be led in coordination with the Associate Dean of Enrollment Services at the Frisco Campus and the QEP Coordinator.
