Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP)
Developed by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, AQIP utilizes the principles and benefits of continuous improvement into the culture of colleges and universities by providing an alternative process through which an already-accredited institution can maintain its accreditation. An institution in AQIP demonstrates how it meets accreditation standards and expectations through a sequence of events that align with the ongoing activities of an institution striving to improve its performance.
