Action Projects are the cornerstone of continuous improvement. While Michigan Tech often creates task forces or committees to address specific problems or opportunities or manage the ongoing work of the University, Action Projects are distinguished by their focus on improving systems and processes that enable Michigan Tech to achieve its mission and goals. By participating in Action Projects, teams of faculty, staff, and administrators engage in data-gathering and decision-making which directly affects their work.

While Michigan Tech was on the AQIP pathway, it engaged in at least three active Action Projects annually that would significantly advance the mission and goals of the university. At least one project directly impacted AQIP Category 1: Helping students learn. All action projects received annual updates and were peer reviewed by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).

In addition to action projects, Michigan Tech also completed a Systems Portfolio in 2009.
