Institutional Effectiveness

The Commission on Colleges' (SACS) Criteria says, "Institutions have an obligation to all constituents to evaluate effectiveness and to use the results in a broad base continuous planning and evaluation process."

Whereas assessment is a process of measuring the degree to which a college is meeting its performance standards, institutional effectiveness is an internal process of planning and evaluation that ensures that Columbia State's performance matches its purpose.

Institutional effectiveness at Columbia State integrates all planning and evaluation processes, including strategic planning, program review, funding formula, and performance funding.
