Since Richland College became a recipient of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 2005, numerous higher education and corporate teams from across North America and from abroad have visited Richland for multiday seminars and workshops on Richland’s performance excellence programs related to developing whole people-whole organizations-whole communities and building sustainable local and world community in the context of a whole, healthy planet.
CRWHE now oversees the scheduling and facilitation of these visits to Richland College and consultative visits to other colleges and universities. Topics include developing and maintaining a culture of high performance; strategic planning/performance measurement; assessing student learning; Baldrige in higher education; GREENRichland; intercultural competence; Institute for Peace; community/industry partnerships; and the roles various programs play in Richland's culture of performance excellence. CRWHE also works closely with individual institutions and consortia to customize learning/sharing opportunities at suggested locations to meet varying institutional needs.
