Faculty Quality Assurance System
Wisconsin State Statute and Administrative Code establish the minimum academic, occupational and teaching requirements for technical college education personnel. The Faculty Quality Assurance System (FQAS) is an effort to ensure quality education by establishing minimum System-wide standards for Wisconsin’s 16 technical colleges.
The FQAS process begins with the hiring process, identifying for colleges the minimum academic and occupational requirements for faculty as established by accreditors and federal and state licensing requirements.
Each college maintains a Faculty Quality Assurance System through professional development plans that include approved educational competencies, ongoing development of occupational experience, mentoring and faculty evaluation.
