GPS: Navigate to Success - LSCO's Quality Enhancement Plan

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is an integral component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process and is derived from an institution’s ongoing comprehensive planning and evaluation processes. It reflects and affirms a commitment to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue that the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success. The document submitted by the institution demonstrates that its QEP (a) has a topic identified through its ongoing, comprehensive planning and evaluation processes; (b) has broad-based support of institutional constituencies; (c) focuses on improving specific student learning outcomes and/or student success; (d) commits resources to initiate, implement and complete the QEP; and (e) includes a plan to assess achievement.

Spring 2024 Update

The QEP program has been named GPS: Navigate to Success. The GPS program will focus on lowering the drop, fail, and withdraw rates of our first-year students, as well as increasing the persistence rate of those students from semester to semester. The GPS program will approach this goal with a required tutoring program.

Tutoring Program

Tutoring works best when it is done consistently. The GPS Tutoring is partnering with select first year courses to connect students with tutoring services early in the semester when it has a chance to make a difference.

GPS Tutoring Program

The QEP team initiated a small scale pilot of the tutoring program in Fall 2023, and are carefully examining the processes and data collected in order to improve this program.
