This report summarizes the findings of the Air Force Institute of Technology’s (AFIT’s) Quality Initiative - External Discovery Team. The overarching purpose of the Quality Initiative is to create a detailed, executable investment strategy for modernizing AFIT’s instructional capabilities across five thrust areas. These activities were completed over the course of one year, beginning in June of 2016 and concluding in June of 2017. The data gathered were evaluated and several recommendations for further review were decided upon by the External Discovery Team. The following report briefly covers those recommendations and provides sources from which the recommendations were gleaned. These recommendations are meant to serve as a baseline for ways in which AFIT could begin to program resources to help improve teaching and instruction across the institution as a whole. The data presented here are meant to serve as a compliment to the Internal Discovery Team’s report that focuses on data and feedback gathered from institutions internal to AFIT.
