Welcome to the Academic Quality Initiative

Helping students learn is a team sport!  ETSUís Academic Quality Initiative is a voluntary program in which faculty work together to . . .

  • set goals for student learning,

  • measure attainment of these goals, and

  • use the results to improve courses and teaching.

ETSU welcomes all of the departments participating in the AQI in 2007-08!


In PHASE ONE of the AQI, departments . . .


In PHASE TWO of the AQI, departments . . .

  • collect data on measurement plans

  • discuss findings and propose ways to improve student learning, and

  • submit an annual report, due April 1.
