What is Institutional Effectiveness?

The institutional effectiveness process is the commitment to the continuous quality improvement of all aspects associated with fulfilling the Institutional Mission. This commitment is ongoing, broad-based, and embedded within the culture of the University. Faculty, administration and staff dedicate themselves to the task of providing high quality educational programs and services that prepare our students for leadership roles in their chosen professions. The goal of institutional effectiveness is to integrate planning, evaluation, and budgeting processes into a comprehensive program that not only encompasses teaching and learning but also the array of administrative and support services which sustain the core activities of the University. Every academic and administrative/educational support unit of the University demonstrates planning, evaluation, and the use of results to improve programs and services.
