Quality Enhancement Program | College of Biblical Studies

Quality Enhancement Program

We are excited to announce the launch of our Quality Enhancement Program (QEP) today. The goal of our QEP program is to equip students with a biblical worldview regarding the stewardship of their educational experience, time, finances, and the spiritual disciplines in order to prepare them not only for successful completion of a CBS degree, but also life after college.

The concept of Stewardship is broken down into three parts to meet the above-stated goal in our new (pilot) first year experience course, GNED1301:

  • Spiritual Stewardship
  • Intellectual (Academic) Stewardship
  • Financial Stewardship

Through the course the student will be able 1) to adopt learning strategies that conform to how God designed the student as a learner; 2) to incorporate biblical truths in planning, prioritization and implementation for realizing educational goals; 3) to develop a spiritual service of worship in academic life, personal life, and local church ministries.

We believe the personal growth and communal ministry are an integral part of a student’s development at CBS. Thus, we prepared this course to reflect CBS’ commitment to improving student learning under the Quality Enhancement Plan of the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, by which CBS is accredited as an institution of higher education.

We want everyone to celebrate with us! Over the next several weeks you will see information regarding the QEP displayed on bulletin boards, in classrooms, the library, offices, and new student discipleship center. That’s not all! We will be distributing QEP T-shirts, pens, and bookmarkers to our faculty, staff and students beginning today and over the next few weeks.
