Florida College is dedicated to constantly improving the quality of education and learning experiences for their students. The Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP, is part of the reaffirmation of the accreditation process every 10 years. The goal is to continue to invest in higher education by improving the quality of the core educational product.
The QEP was created in 2006 and their first objective was to help freshman and transfer students acclimate to college life. This plan was called the STOA, or Success through Tutoring, Orientation and Advising. It established Florida College’s highly successful Supplemental Instruction program, employing top-performing students as tutors for challenging entry-level courses and the academic labs.
In 2016, the QEP implemented the AGORA or Academically Grounded Opportunities for Real-World Accomplishments. It focuses primarily on the transition of upper-division students from college life to the workplace. The AGORA will compliment a traditional and rigorous liberal arts curriculum by providing opportunities for students to experience learning, equipping them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to lead personally and professionally fulfilling lives of service. Whether it is through various types of field experience, job-shadowing opportunities, service learning or student research projects, the AGORA will help students appreciate the relevance of their coursework.
