Institutional Effectiveness Commission

The Institutional Effectiveness Commission engages the campus community in understanding of mission fulfillment and institutional indicators; assesses the effectiveness of the College’s planning, improvement, and assessment systems and structures; evaluates progress toward mission fulfillment; and provides information and recommendations to the campus and community. Here are a few updates on our work.

The IEC accomplishes its work by reviewing and providing recommendations about sponsored workflows/initiatives in these areas:

  • Accreditation
  • Assessment
  • Data governance
  • Key performance indicators
  • Process improvement
  • Program effectiveness, management, and review
  • Other duties as assigned by the sponsor

The Institutional Effectiveness Commission is sponsored by executive members:

  • Associate Vice President Academic Affairs and Institutional Effectiveness (Planning and Institutional Effectiveness)
  • Vice President Academic Affairs 
  • Senior Associate Vice President for Student Affairs 
  • Vice President Finance and Operations 

Committee membership is composed of representatives from all areas of the college: faculty, staff, students, and management. Some members are by position, while others are by rotating assignment.
