Sacramento City College (SCC) has been a member of the Continuous Quality Improvement Network (CQIN) since 2008 when the college first launched a formal Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) initiative.
CQI initiative at SCC was developed with input from the college’s Executive Council, and emphasizes innovation and maintenance of excellence in the face of a changing environment. In keeping with the principles of CQI, the college works to support individual or group projects that work toward the improvement of SCC processes and outcomes in alignment with the college mission, vision, and values. The awards support activities that focus on the improvement of college outcomes, processes and practices.
Focus: projects that work to increase retention and/or completion rates for students who come to SCC unprepared for college level work, or reduce the achievement gaps between student groups.
The awards will support activities that focus on the improvement of a college outcome, process or practice. Projects could involve piloting new teaching methods or student service practices, improved means of providing information to students, analyses of outcomes assessments or other student data, etc.
