Essential Employability Qualities (EEQs) are the people skills, problem-solving abilities, and professional strengths that graduates need to thrive in the changing world of work. The EEQ Pilot involves 27 programs from 14 higher education institutions exploring viable ways to assess and affirm the presence of evidence-based practices that support EEQ development—and assures students and prospective employers that a program of study provides quality preparation for employability.  The EEQ Pilot is a project of The Quality Assurance Commons for Higher & Postsecondary Education,  devoted to exploring, developing, and leading new approaches to quality assurance that serve the needs of learners, employers, and society. This project is initially funded through NCHEMS by a grant from Lumina Foundation.
