2010 Quality Issues Forum

As in past years, this spring the annual Quality Issues Forum, sponsored by the Executive Vice President and Provost and the Office of Planning and Institutional Assessment (OPIA) will recognize recent examples of process improvement and innovation. In 2009, more than sixty teams were recognized for their efforts. With the recent state budget rescissions, these efforts to increase efficiency and effectiveness are even more important. Let us recognize your unit’s process improvements at the 2010 Forum by entering your team in the OPIA database.
