Academic Quality Improvement Program


LFGSM was accepted into the HLC Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) accreditation pathway in 2005. AQIP promotes institutional excellence through continuous quality improvement.

AQIP “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. An institution on the AQIP pathway demonstrates how it meets accreditation standards and expectations through a sequence of events that align with the ongoing activities of an institution striving to improve its performance.”  Source: HLC website

AQIP pathway participation requires LFGSM to engage in a process of ongoing self-study and feedback from peer reviewers. LFGSM is also required to consistently create and execute academic and operational quality improvement projects. Documents related to these activities are catalogued below.
