April 8, 2020

Northeast Lakeview College has received Progress Level Recognition from the Quality Texas Foundation (QTF). Achieving recognition at the Progress Level indicates substantial progress toward institutionalizing an effective, systematic approach to organizational management, with good performance levels and trends evaluated against industry standards.

NLC began its journey with the Quality Texas Foundation in 2016 and received Pioneer Recognition from the organization, Engagement Level Recognition in 2018, and Commitment Level in 2019. Northeast Lakeview College uses feedback from Quality Texas Foundation (QTF) at each of its recognized levels as part of its overall continuous improvement process and annual planning cycle.

This recognition is a collective effort that built on what the faculty, staff, and administration does every day in support of improving the lives of our students and the communities that we serve,” says Dr. Veronica Garcia, Northeast Lakeview College president. 

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 win the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and leads all the other states in this area.
