The Seminole State Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Committee is asking faculty, staff and students to choose between one of three names for the topic, which focuses on reading comprehension and creating a culture of reading at the College.

After receiving nearly 200 name submissions for the QEP through a survey, the QEP's Marketing Sub-Team  trimmed the list to three possible finalists.

The finalists are:

  • Engage with the Page
  • R.E.A.L.:  Reading to Excel in Academics and Life
  • Read to Succeed

Between now and Wednesday, Oct. 31, faculty, staff and students can vote for their favorite choice by filling out an online survey.

The QEP initiative, which is required for reaccreditation, is focused on improving reading comprehension and creating a culture of reading at Seminole State.

A final name and a winner in the contest will be announced by Nov. 13.

The person who suggested the winning name will win a Kindle Fire tablet. If multiple people suggest the winning name, the winner will be chosen by a random drawing. Faculty, staff and students posted their suggestions via a Web survey Sept. 24-Oct. 5.

Seminole State’s topic was chosen in May based on feedback from faculty, staff and community leaders. 

Complete the survey before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31. To view the survey, you will need to enter your MySeminoleState login and password.

QEP is a core requirement for reaccreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges. This process requires the College to submit a comprehensive compliance certification document and a QEP plan centered on a single academic topic by summer 2013. For more information, please visit the QEP homepage.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Dr. Lisa Valentino at 407.708.2862.
