Between fall 2009 and spring 2012, Brookhaven employees and students came together to create the college's QEP, or Quality Enhancement Plan. Throughout the creation process, institutional research showed both a need and a desire for Brookhaven to help its students strengthen their reading skills and interest in reading. Therefore, the QEP will have two main objectives:
The college will implement several creative strategies to achieve these objectives. Over the five years of the plan’s operation, these strategies will become part of the college culture. Brookhaven will also conduct ongoing assessments of each strategy and study the results with the goal of continually improving the plan.
