Reports & Resources

Mission fulfillment is defined as the realization of meaningful goals, embodied by Lane's mission as the community's college and the current Strategic Plan.

The College undertakes a regular review of pertinent data to determine the extent to which Lane has made progress towards these goals, as measured through a set of institutional indicators and attendant thresholds. Mission fulfillment will be evaluated against a benchmark of 70% of indicators at or above established thresholds within each of the goals. 

Mission Fulfillment and Institutional Effectiveness (MFIE) Reports are created by an IEC subcommittee to help the College determine how and in what ways we are achieving or falling short compared to our mission. The MFIE Report demonstrates the College’s commitment to the mission, institutional effectiveness, reflection and continuous improvement. The process and report are the cornerstone of the institutional effectiveness continuous improvement cycle.

The extensive self-evaluation process involves collaboration with stakeholders, reviewing key indicators, feedback from planning bodies, and analysis of internal processes. The report is broken into three parts focused on progress toward mission fulfillment, assessment of institutional effectiveness, and key findings and recommendations. The report is used by executive leaders and campus community members to improve systems, structures, practices, and procedures to better support student success. It also flows into the institutional planning efforts and accreditation reports.

The 2020 report was not written due to the challenges wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. During the 2021/22 academic year, in lieu of writing the MFIE Report, the Mission Fulfillment Indicators were revised to align with Lane’s new Strategic Plan as well as the institutional accreditation standards set by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities
