Center of Excellence:  Lean for Education

Need help applying Lean for Education to your institution?

Do you desire to create a culture of excellence and continuous improvement, but don’t know where to begin? Welcome to the Center of Excellence (COE)—a partnership model with Gateway Technical College and The Quality Group (TQG).

Work gets done in all organizations through processes. Processes inherently have waste. Through the systematic application of Lean Six Sigma, process waste is eliminated. Lean Six Sigma has generally been applied in the manufacturing sector to achieve production and cost efficiencies. When Lean Six Sigma is successfully applied to the processes in education, the results are improved student experiences, reduced operating costs, more satisfied employees, and better operating performance.


The COE serves as the national and regional training hub for educational partners seeking to use the Lean for Education training platform to help build a culture of excellence and continuous improvement.
