Lansing Community College participates in the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP),
a quality-based, continuous improvement model of accreditation through The Higher Learning Commission
(HLC), a Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). This AQIP model is
based on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award Program and incorporates a review process designed to
deliver clear, concrete and efficient feedback to participating institutions. Additionally, it provides
assurance of institutional quality to NCA and other audiences and constituencies.
Every college or university participating in AQIP creates and maintains a Systems Portfolio, a concise description of the organization’s fundamental systems for getting its work done and its goals accomplished. The System Portfolio is organized around the nine AQIP categories. Within each category is a set of questions for each system or group of processes common to all higher education institutions.
