Quality Initiative Project (QIP)

The Open Pathway requires an institution to designate one major improvement effort undertaken during its 10-year accreditation cycle as its Quality Initiative. After thoughtful review and hearing a great deal of consensus, the University of Northern Iowa advanced Community Engagement as its Quality Initiative Project.  “Enhancing Service Learning At UNI” has three components: 1) designating service-learning courses, 2) implementing a Service-Learning Institute, and 3) recognizing and celebrating community engagement work.
