Library services director wins first QEP proposal drawing Carol Stanley, Athens Technical College’s Director of Library Services won a gift card to Mama’s Boy restaurant in the first drawing of the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) campaign to garner proposals that would improve student learning at the college.
The Athens Technical College administration is inviting faculty members, staff, and students to submit their ideas to be considered for QEP, a student-centered learning initiative and part of ATC’s reaffirmation of accreditation process established by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), the college’s regional accrediting organization. Designation as an accredited college ensures student access to federal aid and indicates a college meets or exceeds required quality standards for teaching and learning. Athens Technical College was first accredited by SACSCOC in 1987. An Athens Technical College selection team representing faculty, staff and students from all the college’s divisions already has been reviewing institutional data and reports to determine what can be done to improve learning at Athens Technical College.
From those studies and student surveys, an overarching theme — the student completion experience — emerged as a broad topic of concern. Now, in an effort to narrow that broader theme into a more focused plan of action, the college’s selection team has been asking students, faculty and staff members from all Athens Technical College’s campuses to contribute their own proposals about how to improve the student completion experience, and college officials are offering some incentives to generate those ideas. All proposals meeting submission requirements will be entered into a drawing for some attractive prizes that include a gift card to The National restaurant, a gift card to Urban Sanctuary, and a $50 gift card to PeachMac. The next drawing is scheduled for Friday, May 4th. To get your name in the drawing, submit your QEP idea by 9 a.m. Friday morning.
Someone will take home one of the following prizes: Students, faculty and staff can submit ideas for consideration from now until May 15. Information about how to submit a proposal is available at http://www.athenstech.edu/qep/proposals.cfm.
