Quality Enhancement Plan

What is a QEP?

QEP stands for Quality Enhancement Plan.

Why do we need a QEP?

Southern Adventist University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC), which requires us to submit a QEP as part of our 2022 accreditation reaffirmation. SACS expects the QEP to "enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue or issues the institution considers important to improving student learning." Because of Southern's longstanding commitment to student well-being, this QEP was decided to properly represent Southern in the upcoming accreditation. Southern Adventist University selected "Living in Balance: Healthy Minds" as the QEP topic for the 2022 accreditation cycle.
