According to SACSCOC (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges), a QEP (Quality Enhancement Plan) is a document that:
The purpose of LCU's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is to instill and foster academic tenacity among beginning undergraduate students in order to support persistence.
Students walk through our doors with a vast array of life experiences and from various backgrounds, and some are more prepared than others to face the challenges associated with college life. In fact, our University recognizes that students, especially in their early college years, often face significant challenges that have the potential to derail them and keep them from fulfilling their dreams of completing a college education. Some challenges that students face are beyond our control, yet many are the result of social or academic interactions that occur on a routine basis and cause students to question whether they will be able to succeed in college or even belong there in the first place. We want to help those students overcome the barriers and obstacles and let them know that they do belong.
Students will be immersed in a culture that encourages them to grow and persevere, even when things get difficult. It will instill and foster in them a growth mindset, then provide tools to help them regulate their own learning - putting them squarely in the driver's seat as we prepare them for 21st Century living.
