CARNEGIE MELLON TO PARTICIPATE IN TQM UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE

 CARNEGIE MELLON TO PARTICIPATE IN TQM UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE
 PITTSBURGH, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Carnegie Mellon University President Robert Mehrabian said today he was "extremely pleased" to be among colleges and universities selected to participate with industry sponsors in the Total Quality Management (TQM) University Challenge.
 The TQM University Challenge, announced jointly by Motorola, Inc., Procter & Gamble, Xerox, Milliken and IBM, pairs educational institutions with corporate sponsors who will introduce them to TQM principles and concepts.
 Carnegie Mellon's corporate partner is Xerox. Among the seven other institutions selected to participate are the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Georgia Institute of Technology and Purdue University.
 "Carnegie Mellon is extremely pleased to form this partnership with Xerox, one of the nation's leaders in implementing total quality management," Mehrabian said. "We are proud to be in the forefront of this effort to introduce to academic organizations concepts and systems that have been highly successful in industry.
 "This partnership is designed to create a quality management style tailored to the special needs, role and mission of Carnegie Mellon as an educational institution. The effort at Carnegie Mellon will be led by myself, the provost, deans and appropriate vice presidents. Teaming with Xerox will allow for the development of a common approach within the university community."
 Administrators and faculty members from Carnegie Mellon will receive a week of TQM training at Xerox facilities in late spring 1992. The university will then implement TQM activities, including a focused customer survey and an internal assessment of TQM integration capabilities.
 The TQM University Challenge was proposed by Robert W. Galvin, chairman of the executive committee of the board of directors of Motorola, at the Total Quality Forum sponsored by Procter & Gamble last summer.
