CBC Smart Start: A Quality Enhancement Plan
“The QEP [Quality Enhancement Plan] was developed after conducting student surveys and extensively reviewing student data. Our QEP is designed to raise the bar and raise expectations of CBC students and staff. It’s about packaging services to make the freshman experience at CBC better than ever. All of these things led us to developing the CBC Smart Start experience,” said Velma Elizalde, Vice President of Student and Administrative Services at Coastal Bend College.
CBC Smart Start was designed to ensure all students at CBC have the tools, support, and knowledge they need in order to be successful. There are 3 main components to the CBC Smart Start QEP: a mandatory student orientation, a dedicated faculty advisor, and EDUC 1300 student success course - My Cougar Course:
CBC Smart Start builds on the college’s student success agenda by utilizing data to turn initiatives into practice. All three components together will work hand-in-hand to help increase student success, learning outcomes, retention, and completion rates at all CBC sites.
