Policy Statement

The College values the pursuit of excellence in all of its programs and services. The College strives to remain grounded in best practices and to exceed the standards set forth in those practices. Further, the College is dedicated to a comprehensive institutional effectiveness system (SCCES) encompassing three key elements- employee engagement, infrastructure effectiveness, and student success.

As it relates to institutional effectiveness, the pursuit of excellence, and continuous improvement, the College will uphold a culture of data-informed decision-making, transparency, and accountability to the College’s stakeholders.

To those ends, the Executive Director of Institutional Effectiveness is directed to develop, implement, and continuously improve collaborative and inclusive procedures aimed at ensuring the quality and efficacy of its educational programs and services through shared governance, accreditation, strategic planning, institutional evaluation, research, and reporting.
