Systems Portfolio

Lake Erie College's Systems Portfolio is a comprehensive snapshot of our quality improvement process. AQIP institutions assemble a Systems Portfolio every four years, answer questions under six AQIP categories, while providing evidence in each category to determine if they produce results for student success and whether the college uses the results to make improvements. The Systems Portfolio is one piece of Lake Erie College's reaffirmation through the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP).
AQIP Systems Portfolio Categories and Questions
New Criteria for Accreditation
Our first Systems Portfolio was submitted in 2008 and our second in November 2012. The Higher Learning Commission assigned outside readers to review the document and send a feedback report to the college. The Systems Appraisal Feedback Report, received in March 2013, identified strengths and opportunities for improvement. The next Systems Portfolio is due to the HLC in 2016.
