AQIP Action Projects

What are Action Projects?

AQIP is committed to supporting colleges and universities in their efforts to continuously improve their performance. It requires participating institutions to commit to action and to work consciously to improve the activities and processes that currently produce unsatisfying results. AQIP views Action Projects as an important mechanism that institutions can use to improve performance. Therefore, institutions are urged to take on as many significant Action Projects as possible. AQIP requires institutions to share publicly at all times at least three current Action Projects. For more information, visit
