QUIP Review of Evaluation Processes

This type of review is intended for education abroad provider organizations and institutions with elaborate education abroad evaluation systems that use independent reviewers, and that use evaluation results to make program improvements. It involves a rigorous analysis of all facets of the evaluation system and includes site visits to the main center or office as well as a representative program site.

QUIP recognition is valid for eight years, after which organizations must go through a complete review again in order to maintain recognition. Organizations are required to furnish an interim report four years after a review in which they analyze the current state of their education abroad operations and how they are continuing to meet the field’s Standards.
