Institutional Effectiveness (IE)
Lane's integrated planning and institutional effectiveness model is designed to support and further the college’s mission, with a focus on student learning and success. The model forms the basis for regular and effective assessment, improvement, accomplishment, and adaptation.
Strategic Directions are established every five years as part of a comprehensive strategic planning process that identifies priority actions needed to support and improve achievement of Lane’s mission, as measured by institutional indicators. Strategic Priorities are established biennially to identify priority areas of focus for the College, based upon assessment of progress toward strategic direction objectives and outcomes, internal and external environmental scanning. Program Review and Department Planning support strategic directions and priorities by operationalizing priorities and improvements at the program and service level.
