Quality Enhancement Plan 2022

We Need Your Input on the Topic of the Next QEP

The deadline for suggestions is April 30, 2020.

Contact qep@uhcl.edu for questions.

Help us determine our new QEP topic which addresses one of the four themes from UHCL's Strategic Plan:

  Educational Achievement

Provide innovative and experiential learning opportunities that promote student success. Strengthen interdisciplinary collaborations across the university that enhance the students’ experience throughout their academic and professional careers. Support educational experiences through the optimization and stewardship of educational resources.

  Inclusive Culture

Institutional culture values diversity in many forms, resulting in an intersectional identity for students, faculty, staff and community. University supports the campus community, resulting in meaningful engagement and a positive campus climate. Development and advancement is achieved through institutional programming focusing on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  Innovation through Collaboration

Student opportunities involving internal and external partnerships that engage the community, alumni, employees, and educational institutions, resulting in students making positive contributions to society. New knowledge generated by innovative scholarly activities produced by partners, students and faculty in response to societal opportunities and challenges.

  University Identity

Recognition as an institution that delivers distinctive integrated learning opportunities that invest in stakeholder experiences. The institution is committed to investment in human capital and innovative leadership which maximize the quality of the social, economic and cultural environment.

 The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is the component of the accreditation process that reflects and affirms the commitment of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to the enhancement of the quality of higher education and to the proposition that student learning is at the heart of the mission of all institutions of higher learning. 
The University of Houston-Clear Lake selected Applied Critical Thinking for Lifelong Learning and Adaptability (pdf) as its first QEP topic. Faculty incorporated the best practices advocated by the Foundation for Critical Thinking for teaching ACT skills into one or more of their courses; incorporated ACT learning outcomes into one or more of their courses; and identified learning outcomes and best practices on the course syllabi of the ACT courses they taught.
