Washington and Lee University selected its Quality Enhancement Plan for the SACS reaffirmation of accreditation process completed in 2009. After a lengthy selection process that included 3 campus-wide open forums and an extensive array of other efforts, ultimately yielding over 200 individual concepts and suggestions, the QEP selection committee formulated a final list of 12 outstanding suggestions. From this list, the committee put forward a recommendation of two final concepts, from which the President and Provost chose the Spring Term Revitalization as the idea that most powerfully fulfills the QEP concept.
