An institution on the AQIP Pathway completes an ongoing cycle of Action Projects that over time constitute its record for quality improvement activities. In order to remain aware of the institution’s progress on its quality endeavours and also to serve as a resource to each institution, HLC requires institutions to always have one Action Project in progress. The Action Project requirement is central to an institution’s success in the program because it compels the institution to develop the structure(s) necessary to organize and oversee a quality initiative. This process requires broad engagement of faculty and staff in the selection of projects and also through participation on project teams.
