The Quest for Academic Success: Improving Reading Comprehension
The purpose of the Quality Enhancement Plan is to provide students with a foundation of knowledge and experience that promotes reading comprehension skills which will enrich students' educational experience throughout their academic careers. The plan will enhance courses in which reading comprehension skills are critical to success, by training faculty members who teach these courses to incorporate instructional strategies grounded in research for improving reading comprehension skills.

Three Actions Driving TJC's Quest for Academic Success
Although the Quest Student Success Center is primarily dedicated to
supporting the Quest Students in TJC’s Quality Enhancement Plan, it
provides all TJC students with self-directed learning opportunities and
offers many student reading comprehension support services. Quest
Student Success Center initiatives include student workshops, tutoring,
and faculty development. The Quest Center is housed in the northeast
corner of Vaughn Library and consists of three distinct areas:
a computer lab where students may access the Quest website and
receive reading support from professional tutors and where pre- and
post-testing may be completed in a controlled environment
a classroom for workshops and training that support the QEP initiative and
an office for the QEP director.
