ACC’s QEP is a five-year plan to transform developmental math classes. Research indicates that developmental math is the leading cause of student failure and withdrawal at the post-secondary level.
“We are proud of the college’s QEP and eager to build excitement around the changes it will bring,” says Dr. Richard Rhodes, ACC president/CEO. “We expect our QEP will have a huge impact on students’ success by making developmental math more engaging, more relevant, and more enjoyable for students.”
In addition to enhancing learning ACC’s environment and improving student success, the QEP is an important component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process conducted by the college’s accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. ACC is undergoing the reaffirmation process now and will submit its QEP in fall.Back to Top
