Quality Enhancement Plan

Communication. Initiative. Reliability.

Flight Ready

Rockingham Community College’s (RCC) Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Flight Ready, seeks to improve graduates’ competitiveness entering the workforce or transferring to a four-year institution by developing students’ soft skills in the areas of written and verbal communication, initiative related to improving academic performance, and reliability in planning and completing college-related activities. The QEP utilizes multiple strategies that focus on developing students’ soft skills, readying them for transition into the workforce or to a four-year transfer institution. These strategies include in-class assignments and interventions addressing Flight Ready student learning outcomes (SLO), out-of-class support activities, and professional development for RCC employees.

What is a QEP?

Colleges accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) go through a review for reaffirmation of accreditation every 10 years. For re-accreditation purposes, SACSCOC requires colleges and universities to engage in a broad-based self-study to identify and become involved in a plan that will enhance overall student learning and/or the learning environment at the institution. This Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a five-year project that will become part of the college’s culture.

Flight Ready QEP Goals:

  • Professional Communication
  • Academic Initiative
  • Reliability
  • Professional Development (Faculty and Staff)
