AQIP Continuous Quality Improvement
What is AQIP?
AQIP is a quality improvement program 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. .It operates by involving participating institutions in three distinct cycles that occur simultaneously:
- Action Projects on a one-year cycle,
- Strategy Forums on a four-year cycle, and
- Reaffirmation of Accreditation on a eight-year cycle.

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:
