Crowder College Continuous Improvement Committee

Six committees make up the AQIP Committees.  Each committee representing each AQIP Category and is made up of representation from all areas of the campus.  The committees meet, as a group or sub-group, at least twice a semester. The focus of each committee is to improve the College in the designated area continuously and to be continuously assessing the strengths, weaknesses, and needs of the College in relationship to the AQIP Standards.

The Crowder College Board of Trustees, faculty, and staff have developed nine Student Abilities that are promoted across the curriculum.  We believe the nine student abilities are needed for an individual to become a civil, serving, literate, responsible citizen.  Each course at Crowder College, as per the Institutional Syllabi, supports one or more of these lifelong student success skills.  Assessment instruments were developed to measure the understanding and mastery levels of the student abilities of the Crowder College students.  In addition to the responsibility of improvement of the AQIP Standard, each committee is responsible for monitoring assessment data of one of the nine “Student Abilities.”

From time to time, a Committee may have projects to work on from “Continuous Tactical Planning” or an AQIP Action Projects related to their focus, as determined by the AQIP Steering Committee.
