Since 2005, Kishwaukee College has been accredited through the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). AQIP is a quality improvement and quality assurance program for higher education organizations. It is a process by which continuous quality improvement and accreditation come together. The College was accepted into AQIP in 2005 and has been an active participant since that time. This participation has involved completing a variety of Action Projects, attending three Strategy Forums, creating two Systems Portfolio, and gaining Re-Affirmation of Accreditation in 2012.
For more information about the AQIP program, please visit AQIP's website.

The College completed its first Systems Portfolio in 2009 and its second in 2013. As AQIP states, “The Systems Portfolio is a public portfolio describing fundamental institutional systems. The Systems Portfolio covers the nine AQIP Categories, describing context, processes, results, & improvement in each system, and shows evidence that the institution continues to meet the Higher Learning Commission's five Criteria for Accreditation."
AQIP is an ongoing process, so we are always in need of new ideas and people. For more information about how you can get involved in AQIP, contact:
