Strategy Forum

The Strategy Forum brings together teams from diverse colleges and universities for three days to generate and test new improvement strategies in a creative, supportive environment. At a Strategy Forum, an institution’s team will benefit from both giving and receiving feedback about the best ways to address challenges shared by its higher education peers. The atmosphere at Strategy Forums is serious, but collegial and collaborative. The institutions that interact all share a commitment to continuous quality improvement and its application to the operations, values, and goals of higher education.

Strategy Forums are intensive, focused experiences. An institutional team will be one of four to six teams at approximately the same stage of AQIP participation in a section. There is a Strategy Forum (“Strategies for Action”) for new AQIP institutions and a different Strategy Forum (“Creating the Climate for Continuous Improvement”) for experienced AQIP institutions. The experienced institution 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. Teams should have seven or eight members.
