Institutional Effectiveness Indices

In collaboration with college's academic, administrative and educational support units, the office of Institutional Effectiveness fecilitates the decision making process through planning, evaluation and program review.


Institution Set Standards

Each community college accredited by ACCJC must submit an Annual Report that includes selected trend data and associated institution-set standards. The standards set a minimum “floor.” Standards were traditionally developed by Planning Committee’s Assessment Planning Team (APT), then discussed and recommended by Academic Senate.

Outcomes and Assessment

City College strives to create a culture where outcomes assessment continually improves the quality of student learning and institutional effectiveness. Members of each department and program engage each other in the development and assessment of outcomes. Dialogue within and amongst departments and programs moves the college forward to meet the evolving needs of our students through instruction, curricula, programs, and services.
