Action Projects

Action Projects are a means to focus institutions new to AQIP into working on three projects and demonstrate their efforts to quality improvement, compel institutions to develop the superstructure(s) necessary to organize and oversee a quality initiative, drive institutions to engage their faculty and staff in selection of projects and empower employees by using them on project teams, open an avenue for peer interaction, feedback, and review beginning with the first Strategy Forum.

Action Projects provide institutions a finite, concrete place to begin quality improvement efforts and allow the institution time to gather data for its Systems Portfolio, working toward an institutionally-understood summary of current processes and performance.

The Higher Learning Commission asks institutions to always have underway, and share with the Commission, at least three Action Projects. When an AQIP institution completes a project, the institution then begins a new one, using the knowledge and skills gained from its earlier projects to select, shape, and define the scope.
