The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is an integral component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process, is derived from an institution’s ongoing comprehensive planning and evaluation processes, and focuses on an issue that the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success.
Dillard University has chosen oral communication skills as our QEP topic:
Dillard University’s QEP goal is to foster an institutional environment that prepares students to be effective and competitive oral communicators in a diverse, global, and technologically advanced society.
Effective and competitive oral communication is clear, tactful and relevant; it is informative and concise; it is used to build relationships and to enhance productivity and innovation.
To achieve this overarching goal, Dillard intends to develop students’ oral communication skills to become effective and appropriate communicators in all situations. Key student learning outcomes (SLOs) identified for the QEP include:
