QEP Resources

This section describes the resources necessary for initiating, implementing, and completing the TSU QEP. Specifically, this section addresses the personnel required for implementing the plan, the proposed implementation timeline, and the budget necessary for successful completion.


The organizational structure of the QEP project consists of the following key positions:

  • An Executive Committee
  • Quarterbacks
  • Faculty Partners
  • An Assessment Coordinator

Three of these positions (Executive Committee, Quarterbacks, and Faculty Partners) are directly involved in the implementation of the QEP, while the fourth (Assessment Coordinator) serves as support for the project. This structure is depicted graphically in Figure 6.

Figure 7 provides a timeline for the QEP effort through Spring 2021. As the figure indicates, the plan is to implement the project in stages beginning Fall 2019 with full implementation to occur in Fall 2020.

In Fall 2019 we will focus on a small set of activities, most of which are on-going University activities. The intent of the Fall 2019 effort is to tailor these activities such that their focus is directed toward first-time freshman students. The specific plays to be addressed in Fall 2019 are:

  • Application and Admission
  • Academic Skills Development
  • Self Actualization
  • Faculty Engagement
  • Transition to Major
  • Campus Engagement

Only four of these activities will actually be implemented in its intended form (Academic Skills Development, Self Actualization, Transition to Major, and Campus Engagement). The remaining two (Application and Admission and Faculty Engagement) will focus on the development of resources that will be necessary for full implementation.

In Spring 2020 we will begin work on all 14 plays. The two plays that began development in Fall 2019 (Application and Admission and Faculty Engagement) will be implemented in Spring 2020. Additionally, we will also implement the Financial Aid play during this semester. For all other plays the focus will be on the development of resources necessary for full implementation in Fall 2020 (See Figure 7).
