What does the QIP do? From the CC Bulletin, December 2016:
The transition from college into the workplace can be difficult, and the QIP hopes to offer a solution. The skills that students and graduates have acquired during their time at college are “universally applicable across the local and wider community,” Eichengreen says. What Colorado Springs lacks, he says, at present, is “the local variety of industries to pull these talented students and graduates toward remaining in the community.” Therein lies the heart of QIP’s work yet to come. These industries have to be built, and the ambition of the four institutions — and Eichengreen — is to have CC, UCCS, PPCC, and AFA graduates build them.”
