GEMS Program      

The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a SACS requirement for reaffirmation. Core Requirement mandates that an institution develop a plan for increasing the effectiveness of some aspects of its educational program relating to student learning. Comprehensive standard 3.3.2 requires that an institution demonstrate institutional capacity for completion of the QEP, involve institutional constituencies in planning and implementation of the QEP, and establish goals and an assessment plan. Quality Enhancement Plan Guidelines (pdf) are provided by the Commission.

The process of selecting a topic for the Quality Enhancement Plan began in November of 2010. Ideas were obtained from faculty, staff, students, and other members of the college community. This qualitative data was analyzed to determine relevant survey items to be included on the Quality Enhancement Survey.

The Lane College QEP - General Education Mathematics Scholars (GEMS) focused attention on continuous improvement in mathematics. GEMS provides first-year students an enhanced academic component while addressing the high failure rates in General Education Mathematics courses. GEMS program was implemented during the Fall of 2014. The current general education math sequence involves two courses: Algebra I (MAT 125) and Algebra II (MAT 126).
