Pathways to Resilience

Pathways to Resilience

Through App State’s QEP, the Pathways to Resilience initiative, we are educating students who are career-ready when they graduate, strengthening their ability to envision and implement positive action in their professions and communities.

QEP 2024-2029

Every ten years as part of our reaccreditation process, we select a new Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) topic for coordinated, campus-wide investment. As part of our decennial reaccreditation process, App State will initiate the Pathways to Resilience QEP to take effect by Fall 2024.

The QEP is an integral component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process and is derived from an institution's ongoing comprehensive planning and evaluation processes. It reflects and affirms a commitment to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success.

The QEP:

  1. has a topic identified through its ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes;
  2. has broad-based support of institutional constituencies;
  3. focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success;
  4. commits resources to initiate, implement, and complete the QEP; and
  5. includes a plan to assess achievement.
