Performance Excellence

Northeast Lakeview College completed the requirements for recognition at the Engagement Level by the Quality Texas Foundation (QTF) and was recognized at the recent Quality Texas Conference.

The Quality Texas Foundation assists organizations with continuous improvement efforts by utilizing the Baldrige Framework and since 1993, QTF has administered the Texas Award for Performance Excellence (TAPE) as an independent non-profit corporation. Winning TAPE symbolizes that the organization is one of the best in the state of Texas based upon a very rigorous and robust process. QTF has also had many organizations also win the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and lead all the other states in this area. The Engagement Level is for those organizations that have made a commitment to use performance improvement principles but are new institutions or are new in their performance excellence journey.

Engagement Level Application

In July 2016, NLC received Pioneer Recognition from QTF and the Engagement Level is the next step in this process and involves submitting an Organizational Profile and a 10-page report, responding to questions in six categories and supplying results.
