The University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The HLC is one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States, providing support for institutions across 19 states.
As part of its affiliation with the HLC, the University engages in an eight-year cycle of continuous improvement activities, called the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). The AQIP program is one of three pathways available to HLC-accredited institutions. Activities include Strategy Forums, Action Projects, Systems Portfolios, and Comprehensive Quality Reviews. More information about the AQIP cycle can be found here.
Action Projects are integral to the AQIP pathway for institutional continuous improvement. Action Projects are short-term projects (usually about one year in scope) that address a priority area for the University. We are no longer accepting proposals for AQIP Action Projects due to recent changes to the HLC AQIP Pathway.
*These projects have been closed as AQIP projects, but may still be running as internal improvement projects.
AQIP activities are coordinated by the University’s Accreditation Liaison Officer (Barbara Glackin) and the AQIP Steering Committee.
