Systems Appraisal

AQIP institutions undergo a Systems Appraisal every four years.  The Appraisal is based on the college’s Systems  Portfolio, a document which presents an overview of the institution and answers questions under each of the nine AQIP  Categories.  The Portfolio describes processes, results, and improvement in each system, and shows evidence that the  institution continues to meet The Higher Learning Commission's Criteria for Accreditation.  The Higher Learning  Commission provides each institution with a comprehensive Systems Appraisal Feedback Report in response to the  Portfolio.

Nine AQIP Categories

AQIP 1:  Helping Students Learn

AQIP 2: Accomplishing Other Distinctive Objectives

AQIP 3: Understanding Students' and Other Stakeholders' Needs

AQIP 4: Valuing People

AQIP 5: Leading and Communicating

AQIP 6: Supporting Institutional Operations

AQIP 7: Measuring Effectiveness

AQIP 8: Planning Continuous Improvement

AQIP 9: Building Collaborative Relationships
