Waubonsee Vice President Selected to Serve on Higher Learning Commission Panel

Waubonsee Community College Vice President of Quality and Strategic Development Dr. Karen Stewart, of Maple Park, has been invited to serve on the Higher Learning Commission’s Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) Reaffirmation Panel. Stewart’s term will last until August 2013. 

Structured around quality improvement principles, AQIP is a process whereby higher education institutions can maintain their accreditation status. In this process, colleges and universities are up for reaffirmation every seven years, during which time the Reaffirmation Panel reviews the cumulative record of their AQIP activity.

Waubonsee has operated within the AQIP accreditation process since 2003.
