As an AQIP college, Moraine Park submitted its latest Systems Portfolio in June 2009. The Portfolio addresses all nine AQIP Criteria, describing processes, results and improvements in each system. The college is currently working on updating the portfolio and transitioning to using the Strategic Planning Online (SPOL) Accreditation module. This edition of the portfolio is due to be submitted on June 1, 2013.
An AQIP team of trained reviewers, experienced in continuous systems improvement, conducts a Systems Appraisal. Teams include peers from an assortment of different types of institutions, as well as representatives from outside higher education.
Reviewers provide formal evaluation and feedback in the Systems Appraisal Feedback Report. Analysis is presented in summary rubrics for public information and in a confidential report for the institution containing detailed, actionable comments and explanations.
Based on feedback received in the 2005 report and the last comprehensive site visit by PEAQ in 1995, Moraine Park has made several improvements to the 2009 Portfolio, including addressing suggestions made by the AQIP reviewers. Improvements have been detailed in the latest Systems Portfolio which remains a living document representing Moraine Park's commitment to continuous improvement.
Moraine Park also hosted a Quality Check-Up Site Visit February 7 - 9, 2007. The visit was successful and provided valuable feedback to the college (link to the comprehensive report is found below). Once the site visit was complete, Moraine Park entered into its first Reaffirmation of Accreditation cycle. A summary was provided to a team of AQIP reviewers that discussed Moraine Park's continuous improvement activities. Moraine Park received official notification from the Higher Learning Commission in March 2008 that the college will maintain accredited status until the next Reaffirmation in the 2014-2015 academic school year.
