Mission Fulfillment Institutional Indicators

Mission Fulfillment Institutional Indicators

Indicators were voted on and accepted by the IEC, 2/28/2020

Below are Lane’s Institutional Indicators. Institutional Indicators are assessable and verifiable statements or statistics that help identify how we measure mission fulfillment. The four thematic headings represent the major areas of Lane’s mission, which reads, Lane is the community’s college: we provide comprehensive, accessible, quality, learning-centered educational opportunities that promote student success. The newly adopted definition of mission fulfillment is:

Mission fulfillment is defined as the realization of meaningful goals, embodied by individual student achievement, a quality educational environment, accessible and equitable learning opportunities, and responsive community engagement. 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 four goals.

Student success is defined as the journey through which students develop, progress toward, and achieve their goals. 

Community Service and Engagement 

  1. Percent of continuing education students previously enrolled at LCC
  2. Economic impact of the Small Business Development Center
  3. Participation rates and impact of Lane’s community programs and services

Accessible & Equitable Learning Opportunities
