Action Projects

SCC was accepted into the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) in 2006. AQIP is structured around quality improvement principles and processes and involves a structured set of goal-setting, networking, and accountability activities. AQIP institutions continuously work on improvement projects which provide evidence that quality improvement is occurring at the institution.  The SCC AQIP Quality Team provides oversight for all AQIP related activities, including the selection, deployment and evaluation of SCC's AQIP improvement projects.
