The TQA Project is a
collaboration between the
American Association of State
Colleges and Universities
and the
UW System
Funding for the project is
provided by the Department of
Education through the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), Grant No. P116B070066, and the UW System Administration PK-16 Grant.
