Quality Checkup Visit 

Lansing Community College (LCC) participated in a major component of The Higher Learning Commission's AQIP accreditation process--an AQIP Quality Checkup--from November 29 through December 1, 2006, on the LCC campus. Success in LCC's achieving AQIP's seven-year Reaffirmation of Accreditation depends on staff and faculty understanding the accreditation process and their role in it. To increase knowledge and awareness, please read the overview of LCC's AQIP process below and be familiar with LCC's Systems Portfolio (PDF).

AQIP Background

In 2001 Lansing Community College chose an alternative process for maintaining its accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission. That process, called the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP), involves several steps that ultimately result in the creation of a comprehensive system of data-driven continuous quality improvement in all instructional and administrative areas of the College.

The AQIP Quality Checkup

The next step in the process was the AQIP Quality Checkup scheduled for November 29-December 1, 2006. Two AQIP reviewers---Dr. Vaidehi Rajagopalan and Michael White---assisted LCC in understanding itself and taking actions that will move it toward accomplishing its mission, vision and potential. Quality Checkups are not visits an institution can "fail" (although they could result in uncovering problems not identified previously), so the climate surrounding them should be positive. [more]
