We welcome you to the ASQ Education Division! We think of Quality in Education in two ways:

Our Approach:
We have established three areas of emphasis for quality in education: K-12, Higher Education (including community colleges), and Workplace Development and Training. With each one of these areas, we support ASQ's global transformation initiative and ASQ's social responsibility movement.

Best practices include the Baldrige Education Criteria, Lean Six Sigma, and quality standards related to education.
The Education Division is holding steady with approximately 1,200 members. The Division Leadership Team works to ensure member satisfaction by evaluating and acting on responses to the annual Voice of the Customer surveys. The division publishes the open access, peer-reviewed Quality Approaches in Education and the Division bi-annual newsletter, QED News.
The Education Division supports and participates in ASQ's World Conference on Quality and Improvement.

How to Get Involved Now
The Education Division leaders are committed to creating a community in which members can network with and learn from others about the issues of greatest interest and concern. We believe there are many activities here to get involved with and we invite your participation! Our leadership team is listed below, feel free to reach out!
