How We Can Help

If you are interested in requesting assistance from the Office of Quality Improvement, please contact us at 262-6843. We also invite you to e-mail your ideas, questions and comments to:

We offer consultation and facilitation services for academic and administrative units throughout the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We help groups identify their aims and then suggest methods for achieving those aims.

Our consultants are familiar with a variety of improvement approaches. We ask questions from an outside perspective to help identify the key issues. Frequently, we connect people with others who have undertaken similar efforts on campus or in other institutions.

Utilizing OQI consultants as facilitators allows you to focus attention on content and to be a full participant in designing improved work processes.

OQI consultants can assist you with:

  • Identifying root causes of persistent problems
  • Identifying and prioritizing expected outcomes
  • Designing and implementing improvement projects
  • Creating data collection systems to determine instructional or service needs
