Baldrige in Education - Online Curriculum

The GSQC is pleased to be able to offer an online resource to our colleagues in education.  The Baldrige in Education Curriculum provides a self-paced overview of how the Baldrige Criteria supports education organizations, both K-12 and Higher Education.  It consists of 9 modules, each approximately 15 minutes in length and each with additional video and written resources from and about education.  This tool is most relevant to leaders of education organizations (including Boards and administrators), but is also applicable to individual educators and staff members who want to know more about how the Criteria for Performance Excellence supports education.  It is also a great resource for education organizations that want to introduce Baldrige and Performance Excellence concepts to all or part of the faculty and staff.

We are providing this curriculum to educators at no cost however a username and password is required.   See The Details below for information on ">registering.   For more information on the Curriculum, how to get the most out of it, or to get help in registering, contact the GSQC.
