Article Abstract

As education goes, so goes quality, since the leadership derived from the educational process provides direction for the future. How ASQ can use student branches and other key resources more effectively to improve quality and education systems for the future is considered. ASQ student branches are groups of faculty and students formed around partnerships between educational institutions and local sections of ASQ. Student branches provide several opportunities related to using resources to increase knowledge related to quality, but the vast educational resources are not being wisely or prudently used. Better connection with and development of student branches can provide a key starting point for those entering the quality profession and provide a bridge between those studying quality as a career and those studying quality for knowledge they will use in another career. The collective resources of student branches have tremendous potential. The challenge is to provide infrastructure and mechanisms through ASQ to capture it. There must be a purposeful and systematic effort aimed at growing knowledge further quicker, and better. Failure to do this may leave other disciplines to take the lead in addressing quality issues in the educational process.
