Institutional Effectiveness and Planning

 

Institutional effectiveness presumes that an institution is engaging in ongoing, integrated, and institution-wide research-based planning and evaluation processes that incorporate a systematic review of programs and services that result in continuing improvement and demonstrate that the institution is effectively accomplishing its mission.

The university is expected to document quality and effectiveness by employing a comprehensive system of planning and evaluation in all major aspects of the institution. Planning and evaluation of teaching, research, service, administration, and educational support should be thorough, broad-based, integrated and appropriate. Institutional effectiveness provides documentation of planning, assessment, and the use of results in decision-making.
