Quality Enhancement Plan

Office of Institutional Planning

Write Your Future is Kilgore College’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) developed to satisfy requirements for KC’s reaffirmation of accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).  Every 10 years, KC must implement a five-year plan to improve student learning outcomes and/or student success.  Since it was approved by the SACSCOC on-site team that visited KC in Fall 2018, the QEP officially kicked off in the fall of 2019.
