Quality Enhancement Planning (QEP)

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a long-term plan that focuses on improving (or enhancing) student learning, performance, and student success. It is an integral component of the reaffirmation of the accreditation process. The QEP topic is derived from an institution’s ongoing comprehensive planning and evaluation processes. It reflects and affirms a commitment to enhancing overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success.

Miles College Policy Database

The Miles College Policy Database houses the official collection of all institutional-wide policies (those that impact the members of the College community across all campus units).  Miles College makes every reasonable effort to ensure that the information contained in the Policy Database is accurate and current, but no claim is made by the College that the compendium is exhaustive.

Miles College reserves the right to amend or revoke its policies at any time. New policies are entered as soon as possible after they are approved, but there may be a delay before posting. If you have any doubt or question about a policy in the Policy Database, you should contact the office listed as the “Area” on the Policy Database for that particular policy.
