Dr. Mark Staszkiewicz, Educational and School Psychology Department, has been selected to serve on the Board of Examiners for the Keystone Alliance for Performance Excellence (KAPE). To serve on the board, Dr. Staszkiewicz had to undergo an extensive three-day training program and will participate in the evaluation of a 2008–2009 KAPE Award application.
The KAPE Award process is open to all organizations in business, education, health care, government, and nonprofit sectors. The process is based on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award Criteria, a proven system for assessing and improving organizational performance. At the end of the process, applicant organizations receive recognition, but the real value comes from the comprehensive, action-oriented feedback report that details each organization’s strengths and opportunities for improvement.
