Institutional Effectiveness

The College has established an institutional effectiveness structure that demonstrates effectiveness through the assessment and improvement of mission goal outcomes at the institutional level, student learning outcomes at the program level and educational support outcomes at the unit level.

Outcomes assessment information relevant to potential students is available from the specific academic program and may include performance indicators such as national examination pass rates, internship or clinical performance ratings, portfolio or capstone project assessment, job placement rates, etc. Students interested in this information should talk with the academic program chairperson.
