What is the Quality Enhancement Plan?

The goal of the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is to improve Information Literacy Skills for NVC students. When students leave NVC, they will be able to accomplish the following: 

  • Find credible and relevant information through ethical and effective navigation of internet resources  
  • Use critical thinking skills to discern and analyze information  
  • Synthesize information by effectively gathering and integrating academic and college resource material into an ePortfolio  
  • Evaluate and manage acquired Information Literacy Skills through a self-evaluation process. 
 QEP Mission    QEP Objectives 

The Quality Enhancement Plan is linked to Creating Opportunities for Success in the following ways:

  • Student learning outcomes achievement through improved teaching
