Quality Initiative Background

UALR launched the Decision Support System (DSS) implementation project in Fall 2013 to provide support and tools that facilitate a data-informed culture of continuous improvement and equip faculty and staff at all levels with complete, correct, and current data to inform decision making. The QIP is spearheaded by a 15-member Quality Initiative Taskforce.

UA Little Rock’s Quality Initiative Project (QIP), “Facilitating Continuous Improvement: The Implementation of UA Little Rock’s Decision Support System,” is essential to improving decision making at all levels and providing quality information during the accreditation process.

The project will help guide the way we conduct accreditation activities because access to quality data will aid in the reporting process.
