The Office of Institutional Effectiveness is committed to continuous review, assessment, change and experimentation to support the fulfillment of the College's vision and mission.

Institutional Effectiveness utilizes a data-driven planning process that is focused on outcomes. Assessment of the College plays a central role in this planning process.
