Foundations of Excellence is a two-year process that includes a variety of support components and processes to help institutions implement their action plans to a high degree.
There are two required surveys utilized in the assessment and planning process: one measuring student perceptions and the other perceptions of faculty and staff. These are owned and provided by Skyfactor.
Institutions may choose to add on the Evidence in Pedagogy and Curriculum Module (EPC). (See fees above)
