At Columbus State, continuous quality improvement (CQI) is the work we do.
During the Spring 2012 In-service, departments were asked to submit CQI activities on which they were working. Over 40 projects were submitted and are summarized here.
CSCC improvement projects come in all shapes and sizes. But the bottom line is that quality is what we strive for every day. Here's the form you can use to tell us about your special project.
