Institutional Effectiveness Committee

Meeting Schedule & Location: 

Participatory Group
2nd Thursday, 2:00pm, L237

History

In the past there was a Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Committee (SLOAC), made up primarily of faculty. This committee was to insure the review and institutionalization of Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) for all courses and programs was completed.

In 2010 the committee charge was broadened to include oversight of all College planning processes, including Program Review. The name of the committee was revised to the Institutional Effectiveness Committee (IEC) and an Institutional Effectiveness Coordinator position was created.

Present

In 2015, as part of the College’s reflection and assessment of committee charges and processes College Council reaffirmed the committee charge and revised the committee name to the Planning, Research, and Institutional Effectiveness Committee (PRIEC). The single coordination position was converted into three positions representing student services and the two academic divisions.

Our Mission & Responsibilities

The mission of the Planning, Research and Institutional Effectiveness Committee (PRIEC) is to ensure that the college maintains a set of ongoing and systematic institutional processes and practices that include planning, the evaluation of programs and services, the identification and measurement of outcomes across all institutional units (including learning outcomes in instructional programs), and the use of data and assessment results to inform decision-making. All of these activities are accomplished with the purpose of improving programs and services and increasing student success and institutional quality. [i]
