American Society for Quality

By bridging the gap from academics to the workplace, we will model, practice, and explore quality management, thereby improving our club, communities, and world, one student at a time. “If it isn’t broke, improve it!”

What is American Society for Quality (ASQ) all about?

The American Society for Quality seeks to bring out the best in every profession. The Fredonia ASQ chapter hopes to show students how being a part of our group is beneficial for all majors. We have members in the business department, as well as the arts and sciences!

Shorewood Networking Event

At the end of each semester we have a networking event at the Shorewood Country Club in Dunkirk. You will be able to meet ASQ professionals from Erie and enjoy some great food! Our members will be able to bring their resumes to be critiqued and will be able to make potential career connections.
