SACS QEP Development Committee
October 6, 2011
206 Samford Hall
Present: Bliss Bailey, Richard Burt (Chair), Lenny Lock, Margaret Marshall, Kevin Phelps, Constance Relihan, Bonnie Sanderson, Pamela Stamm, Aaron Trehub
Others Present: Drew Clark, SACS Liaison
I. Drew Clark, Auburn’s SACS liaison, called the meeting to order at 3:00 p.m. and asked the members of the Quality Enhancement Plan Development Committee (QEPD) to introduce themselves with reference to their experience with previous educational institutions.
II. Clark provided an overview of the SACS QEP requirements and process. The committee is charged to deliver a complete draft of a working plan for Auburn’s e-portfolio project by September 1, 2012. After an opportunity for review and commentary by the campus community, the final draft of the QEP document will be submitted to SACS by January 2013.
III. Members of the committee exchanged initial ideas about aspects of the QEP development process. An initial emphasis should fall on the specification of goals for the project, to include specific and measurable student learning outcomes. Digital portfolios are already in use or under consideration in some areas of campus, and they hold potential to enhance a variety of other campus initiatives, such as the Writing Initiative and General Education reform.
IV. The committee discussed their availability for future meetings and determined that the next meeting would be held on Monday, October 10, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. at a location to be announced within the OIT building.
V. The meeting was adjourned at 4:25 p.m.
