5. Develop a culture of systematic needs
assessment through a comprehensive
performance analysis and the
establishment of a continual calendar
of performance analysis confirmation
and update (strategic planning).
Within the performance analysis,
include QEP benchmarks and
language developed by the QEP
assessment committee to demonstrate
the link between tutoring services,
center objectives, and desired
University outcomes. Consider a
regularized system of reporting on the
program’s successes and aggregate
data to the campus as whole. This
should include an increase in both
budget and time
