The Lincoln Foundation for Performance Excellence

Illinois Central College (ICC) has been awarded the 2010 Silver Award for Progress toward Excellence — the highest level ever given to any Illinois college or university by the Lincoln Foundation for Performance Excellence. The Lincoln Foundation for Performance Excellence is a statewide, nonprofit organization that assists leaders in business, education, health care, government, and nonprofit agencies in applying the Baldrige Criteria to achieve performance excellence.

The Baldrige Performance Excellence Program was established by the U.S. Department of Commerce in 1987 to enhance the competitiveness, quality, and productivity of U.S. organizations. Congress created the Malcolm Baldrige Award Program to identify and recognize role-model businesses, establish criteria for evaluating improvement efforts, and disseminate and share best practices.

In June 2010, Illinois Central College submitted its first application to the Lincoln Foundation and received a feedback report to provide a guide to improve its performance. Below are the links to the documents.
