Institutional Effectiveness Committee

The Institutional Effectiveness Committee (IEC) reports to the College Planning Council (CPC) and serves as an Accreditation Steering Committee. The committee improves program planning and resource allocation processes to support student learning by:

  • Ensuring program planning processes are documented
  • Providing technical assistance to units developing program plans including establishing baseline data, designing measurable outcomes connected to college strategic plans and utilizing findings from evaluation efforts
  • Reviewing and analyzing goals to identify institutional themes to aid the integration of planning and resource allocation efforts
  • Recommending improvements to processes to ensure efficacy in fulfilling the college mission and that the campus meets accreditation standards
  • Communicating trends and findings with the campus community and visiting accreditation teams

Excerpt from ACCJC Standard I.B. Improving Institutional Effectiveness

The institution demonstrates a conscious effort to produce and support student learning, measures that learning, assesses how well learning is occurring, and makes changes to improve student learning. The institution also organizes its key processes and allocates its resources to effectively support student learning. The institution demonstrates its effectiveness by providing 1) evidence of the achievement of student learning outcomes and 2) evidence of institution and program performance. The institution uses ongoing and systematic evaluation and planning to refine its key processes and improve student learning.
