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 Systems 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. For each category, the questions ask the institution to describe:
- the context for the system under examination (C),
- the key processes the organization uses to accomplish its goals (P),
- the performance results the organization is obtaining with its current processes (R), and
- how the organization uses its results data to identify targets for improvement and enhance the system and the organization's operations (I)
Submitted to AQIP in May of 2005, Lansing Community College’s System Portfolio will be updated annually to reflect changes in the college’s systems and processes. To view the most recent version, click on the “System Portfolio” link on this web page.
