Heard on Campus: John Dew at the Quality Issues Forum

May 07, 2007

"These are days in higher education where there's a lot of people talking about change. A lot of people outside of our institutions who are talking about change at the state level, at the federal level, people in corporations, have got all sorts of ideas about what higher education needs to do But what I have found is that change must come from within. It is these processes of assessment and planning and improvement at our institutions that are driving meaningful change for our organizations."

--John Dew, director of continuous quality improvement and planning, University of Alabama, in a speech titled "Now, More than Ever: Continuing Continuous Improvement" Friday, May 4, at Penn State's annual Quality Issues Forum, sponsored by the executive vice president and provost and the Office of Planning and Institutional Assessment to recognize 51 teams and approximately 396 individuals from 16 University units for their contributions to innovation and improvement at Penn State.
