Continuous Improvement through AQIP

Shawnee State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association through participation in its Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP).

The AQIP process is ongoing, with a focus on continual improvement. Structured around quality improvement principles, AQIP involves a set of networking, goal-setting, and accountability activities. Through the program, Shawnee State's continual progress and accreditation status is reviewed every seven years. The University's next reaffirmation review will occur in the 2018-2019 academic year.

About AQIP

Launched in July 1999 with a generous grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Academic Quality Improvement Program 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 from the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association. With AQIP, an institution demonstrates it meets accreditation standards and expectations through sequences of events that align with those ongoing activities that characterize organizations striving to improve their performance. Shawnee State was accepted into AQIP in December 2004.

More information about AQIP can be found at their website.
