What is institutional effectiveness? Institutional effectiveness is proving how we as a college fulfill our mission statement.
According to SACSCOC, our regional accrediting agency, institutitional effectiveness (IE) is "a systematic, explicit, and documented comparison of institutional performance to institutional purpose." In other words, IE is the process by which we focus on meaningful improvement and quality.
CTC documents its institutional effectiveness planning using a web-based software by Taskstream called AMS.
When thinking about institutional effectiveness, I would like everyone to consider this quote by Aristotle:
The question is not "should we change?"
The question is "how will we change?"
