QEP Topic Selection Committee Hosting Listening Sessions 

QEP Topic Selection Committee Hosting Listening Sessions

This September the UM QEP Topic Selection Committee will host three targeted listening sessions regarding the topics under consideration for the University’s quality enhancement plan, a key part of the SACSCOC reaffirmation effort.

The dates for these sessions are as follows:

  • Faculty Listening Session: Wednesday, Sept. 11, 3:30 p.m. in Wills 200 (as part of Faculty Assembly)
  • Student Listening Session: Wednesday, Sept. 18, 4:30 p.m. in Farmer Hall
  • Staff Listening Session: Friday, Sept. 20, 1 p.m. in Morgan 103

While each listening session has a target audience, all sessions are public and open to anyone who would like to attend. Once sessions are complete, campus constituents will receive information regarding a brief online survey where everyone can once again offer feedback regarding the potential topics. The QEP Topic Selection Committee will then review all feedback and formulate a recommendation for UM’s SACSCOC Reaffirmation Leadership Team. The topic will be determined no later than November, at which time a soon-to-be-formed QEP Development Committee will move the topic into its development phase. Topic proposals are available for review at this link. 

Individuals needing disability-related accommodations during this event should contact the host department or Disability Support Services (205.665.6250, as early as possible. Efforts will be made to accommodate all access requests regardless of timing, but the University cannot guarantee that requests made with less than one week’s notice can be met.
