Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP)
"The HLC's Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) infuses the principles and benefits of continuous improvement into the culture of colleges and universities by providing an alternative process through which an already-accredited institution can maintain its accreditation. An institution in AQIP demonstrates how it meets accreditation standards and expectations through a sequence of events that align with the ongoing activities of an institution striving to improve its performance.
Based upon principles common to high performance organizations, AQIP draws from a variety of initiatives and programs - Total Quality Management (TQM), continuous improvement (CI), Six Sigma, ISO 9000 registration, state and national quality awards, and others. Many of AQIP's quality principles - focusing on key processes, basing decisions on data, decentralizing control, empowering faculty and staff to make the decisions that directly affect their work -have long been traditions in higher education, although their form and the breadth of their practice in particular institutions may vary greatly."
As an AQIP institution, Taylor is dedicated to high performance and to our stakeholders. Additional information about AQIP, continuous improvement and accountability activities, as well as a record of Taylor's current AQIP Action Projects are available at HLC/AQIP.
