Quality Seekers Seek UW-Stout

Quality Seekers Seek UW-Stout
Five years later, UW-Stout is still busy with Baldrige.

Representatives of Massey University in New Zealand were on the UW-Stout campus to pick the brains of faculty and staff members Nov. 6. The international visitors wanted to know what the UW-Stout campus did to achieve the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Their questions focused on leadership, culture, systems and people.

In 2001, UW-Stout became the first university to receive the award. Since then, Stout administrators have shared their strategies and best practices worldwide by participating in approximately 25 speaking engagements each year; publishing articles, chapters of books and case studies; judging state quality programs; and welcoming award candidates to campus.

On Nov. 29, the process starts all over again. UW-Stout will host visitors from the Nanyang Polytechnic of Singapore.
