Quality Initiative

The Open Pathway requires UA to undertake a major Quality Initiative designed to suit its present concerns or aspirations. UA developed the UA Learning Initiative which has been featured in the HLC 2016 Quality Initiative Proposal Samples.

The UA Learning Initiative is an approved Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Quality Initiative designed to enhance and support student learning through integrated programs for both faculty and students. These initiatives are focused on leading faculty and students through discussion and activities focused on understanding and using effective strategies that can improve student learning and enhance retention of learned content and concepts.
