RichmondCC’s Quality Enhancement Plan
Richmond Community College's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is entitled Getting Prepared for Success (GPS). The QEP is designed to assist each student in developing an individual success plan through career exploration, adaptive advising, connecting with employers, and utilizing avenues to senior institutions of higher learning. This plan will foster a campus-wide culture that recognizes the importance of career advising and the critical role it plays in student success, not only in terms of achieving an academic credential, but enjoying a rewarding and fulfilling career.
The QEP is designed not only to implement changes in student career advisement, but to assess the impact these changes have on the following goals:
- Increase retention rates from Fall-to-Fall and Spring-to-Fall
- Increase the number of students having a completed Career Plans
- Increase the number of apprenticeships and internships
- Increase the number of students receiving job offers from an employer or acceptance letters from senior institutions before they graduate
As each student defines his or her success with a Career Plan, the College believes the QEP will have a positive impact on student retention and achievement of academic and career goals.
RichmondCC's QEP topic is a result of its on-going institutional planning, evaluation, and research, as well as a review of empirical data and existing literature. The plan includes design and implementation components, along with formative and summative assessment methods. The QEP also has broad-based support from internal and external institutional stakeholders.
