Systems Portfolio

The Systems Portfolio

Columbus State's second Systems Portfolio pdf icon was completed in October 2013. The report provides key documentary evidence of the college's journey along the AQIP accreditation pathway.

Nine campus research teams produced almost two hundred pages of initial data and analysis. Core tecover imageam members Ingrid Emch, Bruce Massis and Antoinette Perkins assimilated the material into a draft portfolio. Multiple stakeholders provided feedback for their areas of the document and Valerie Wilson completed the final edits, with design by Paul Rehg.

Faculty Fellow Greg Goodhart, Interim Chairperson - Mathematics, served as the Project Manager and Polly Owen, Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs, served as the Administrative Manager.

A year in the making, the final 124-page report answers some 140 questions about quality processes, results and improvements at the college.

The Higher Learning Commission provided a comprehensive review of the portfolio in their Systems Appraisal Feedback Report in February 2014.

The First Systems Portfolio

In November 2009, Columbus State Community College submitted its first Systems Portfolio to the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) of the Higher Learning Commission. The Systems Portfolio provides a 100 page 'snapshot'of CSCC's processes and data as of summer 2009.

In April 2010 AQIP reviewers responded to our Portfolio with their Appraisal Feedback Report.  It includes the observations and recommendations of the AQIP team.
