Southeast AQIP Now Accepting Action Project Proposals Until Oct. 31

Southeast is now accepting Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) proposals.

An Action Project is an institutional quality improvement project with a scale that typically requires one or more years to complete. An Action Project may take place at a unit level, may be proposed by any University community member, including students, and could potentially provide benefits to the entire University.

Southeast maintains a minimum of three current Action Projects as part of the University’s ongoing involvement in the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) with the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Action Projects are one of the pieces of evidence that the HLC uses in determining the eligibility of campuses for accreditation in AQIP.

At least one of the current Action Projects has reached the end of its project timeline. The AQIP Steering Committee is soliciting ideas for new Action Projects, which can focus on any of the six AQIP categories as defined by the HLC. The six AQIP categories are as follows: helping students learn; meeting student and other key stakeholder needs; valuing employees; planning and leading; knowledge management; and resource stewardship and quality overview.

All faculty, staff and students can submit potential Action Project ideas. A list of all current and past Southeast Action Projects and the Action Project Proposal form can be found at http://www.semo.edu/aqip/. Deadline for submission is Oct 31.
