Since 2003, Waubonsee has participated in the Higher Learning Commission's Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). AQIP seeks to infuse the principles and benefits of continuous improvement into the culture of colleges and universities in order to assure and advance the quality of higher education. AQIP is one of three pathways offered by the HLC which institutions may participate in to maintain accreditation.
AQIP is an eight-year accreditation cycle, culminating in a Comprehensive Evaluation Reaffirmation of Accreditation visit. In March of 2017, Waubonsee was granted successful reaffirmation following its Comprehensive Evaluation visit in September 2016.
You can read the Waubonsee Systems Portfolio to learn more about the AQIP categories and our ongoing commitment to quality and continuous improvement.
