Collins, Donald R.
Online Submission, Lamar University Electronic Journal of Student Research Fall 2008
Institutional Effectiveness is a process in which an Institution demonstrates its success in accomplishing its mission and meeting its goals. The Institutional Effectiveness process requires the University to establish outcomes based on its mission. Faculty and administrators align the University mission statement to academic programs and administrative units' missions. Program and learning outcomes that are the most appropriate and meaningful are identified, assessed and reported to constituents. Continuous improvement is accomplished using assessment results that are reported to the assessment coordinator. Ultimately, the result of this process is the closing of learning and service delivery gaps. (Contains 3 figures and 11 appendixes.)
