What is QEP? What is CTC's QEP? What does FAST stand for?

To learn more about the answers to these questions, watch this YouTube video.


Central Texas College’s most recent SACSCOC reaffirmation process included creating and implementing a Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP, with the objective to improve student learning and success.  In fall 2012 Central Texas College (CTC) began soliciting and narrowing possible topics for its Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). Employees from its various campuses participated in focus groups, research, and planning meetings— culminating in a topic selection in March 2013.  The topic that received highest priority from the participants was the improvement of student success through faculty advising.  FAST: Faculty Advise and Students Thrive.

FAST has as its core strengthening the faculty/student relationship thus supporting student success. Students will complete individual academic goals on time by developing skills that enhance student learning with the guidance of a faculty advisor. The plan will implement faculty advising with three major initiatives: 

  • Focusing on students completing individual academic goals on time
  • Institutionalizing faculty advising mechanisms
  • Providing faculty advisor training through professional development

To learn more about this initiative, view this FAST flyer.

To review the FAST plan in its entirety, read the FAST QEP Document.

FAST is directly aligned with CTC’s mission: Central Texas College’s accessible education supports student success and employability.
