Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP): We Need Your Input!

BCTC is beginning the reaffirmation/accreditation process and part of that process is to develop a Quality Enhancement Plan. We need your help to decide on a topic. Our topic needs to be something that positively impacts student learning and success, and should be something that we can all get behind! The first part of the process is to get input on what we think is important, and here is where we need your help. Please click on the link below to complete a one question survey. This will help us focus on what we, as a college, think are the most important issues impacting our student's success. Once we have narrowed down to several topics, you will be asked for your input again to help us finalize our decision.

If you have questions, contact Terry Buckner at

Thank you,

Terry Buckner
Chair, QEP Topic Selection Committee
