Lorain County Community College participates programs that recognize organizational quality at both the state and national levels.

Two of the leading quality organizations are the Malcomb Baldrige National Quality Award and the Ohio Partnership for Excellence™ (OPE).

The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award was signed into law on August 20, 1987. The Award Program led to the creation of a new public-private partnership. Principal support for the program comes from the Foundation for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, established in 1988.

The Award is named for Malcolm Baldrige, who served as Secretary of Commerce from 1981 until 1987. His managerial excellence contributed to long-term improvement in efficiency and effectiveness of government.

The Ohio Partnership for Excellence™ (OPE) is a non-profit organization that works with organizations to simply become better at what they do.  By using the Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence as a framework, OPE helps organizations see improved results.  Many organizations see lowered costs, improved productivity, increased profitability, and rises in both employee and customer satisfaction.

The Ohio Partnership for Excellence recognizes organizational performance with the Ohio Award for Excellence®.  Applicant organizations submit a self-assessment, addressing items in the Criteria, and receive an external assessment by trained, volunteer examiners.  These examiners come from all sectors and regions of Ohio, and are trained in the Criteria, to help the organization identify its strengths and opportunities for improvement. After the completion of these assessments, the organization is awarded one of four levels:  Pledge to Excellence, Commitment to Excellence, Achievement of Excellence, and our highest award, the Governor's Award for Excellence.
