What is Institutional Effectiveness? What does the Office of Institutional Effectiveness do?
The goal of Institutional Effectiveness at Georgia Perimeter College is to support the efforts of constituencies across the college in planning for the future, measuring the results of their efforts, and evaluating their success in meeting their goals. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness aims to support these constituencies by developing processes, timelines and templates for planning and measurement, and by individual consultation with various units of the college.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness is also responsible for maintaining records and submitting documents as needed in support of regional accreditation, maintaining information about specialized accreditations, and ensuring that documents submitted in support of both regional and specialized accreditations contain consistent and correct information about the college. The Office of Institutional Effectiveness initiates development and approval of new policies as needed to maintain accreditation compliance, monitors new policies and initiatives at the college to ensure that the college remains in compliance with the requirements of its accrediting bodies, and ensures that changes are reported to accrediting bodies as required.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness supports GPC’s Office of Institutional Research (which is part of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness) in its mission to provide accurate and timely information in service of college reporting and decision-making requirements. (Planning and measurement for Institutional Research are reported in a separate document.)
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness also provides support for the operations and measurements necessary to implement and evaluate GPC’s Quality Enhancement Plan.
