Systems Appraisal Feedback Report is In

A few faces were missing from the halls of MCC the last week of April. In case you were wondering where they were, the answer is out: they were attending the AQIP Strategy Forum in St. Charles, Illinois.

Creating the Climate for Continuous Learning is a distinct Strategy Forum intended specifically for institutions already experienced with AQIP. This Strategy Forum requires an institution to have submitted a Systems Portfolio to AQIP, undergone a Systems Appraisal, and received and analyzed its Systems Appraisal Feedback Report. It is designed to be a springboard to institutional action. It is a focused session, away from the distractions of normal job responsibilities, where the leadership of the institution can come together and focus specifically on its continuous improvement program.

The forum reaffirmed that MCC is on the right track and has a solid grasp of the AQIP process. It has also provided us with focus and direction for further improvement efforts, along with much cause for celebration.

A report back to the college took place at a brown bag session on May 2nd. For those of you who were unable to attend (or who wish to review it), a link to the slideshow is provided here.

Expect to hear more in Fall, when our newest Action Projects will launch!
