Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a document developed by the institution that (1) includes a process identifying key issues emerging from institutional assessment, (2) focuses on learning outcomes and/or the environment supporting student learning and accomplishing the mission of the institution, (3) demonstrates institutional capability for the initiation, implementation, and completion of the QEP, (4) includes broad-based involvement of institutional constituencies in the development and proposed implementation of the QEP, and (5) identifies goals and a plan to assess their achievement (SACSCOC, 2019).

South Florida State College (SFSC) initiated Panther PATHways as a focused effort to institute guided pathways and provide structured guidance and proactive, holistic support measures for all students at SFSC. 

The overarching goal of Panther PATHways is to improve attainment through access and enable a seamless transfer to a four-year institution and in-field job placement. This will be accomplished by reimagining academic advising practices and providing bundled and sequenced support in:

Preparing students for the path

Advising students on the path

Teaching students along the path

Helping students successfully complete the path
