Institutional Effectiveness Framework
What is Institutional Effectiveness?
Institutional Effectiveness is defined as the degree to which York College students attain success in achieving Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) and Student Success Outcomes (SSOs) through investments in organizational capacity and student learning. Institutional effectiveness responds to the needs of our stakeholders, accomplishing our mission and goals, and planning, assessing, and deploying our resources so that students can effectively achieve ILOs and SSOs.
York's Institutional Effectiveness Accountability Structure illustrates who is accountable for assessment. The Institutional Effectiveness Committee (IEC) coordinates the work of the College-wide assessment committees (Academic Assessment Committee, General Education Assessment Committee and Administrative, Educational, and Student Support Assessment Committee) and reports to the President and the Cabinet as depicted in Figure 3 below.
