Center for Institutional Excellence

Mission Statement:

The Center for Institutional Excellence is to promote excellence in student learning, educational practices and quality of services by establishing and maintaining a campus culture of self-evaluation and improvement at all levels of the institution.

Our primary role is to provide guidance and support for all academic and non-academic programs on campus in assessing change and enhancing best educational practices through assessments and program review.

In order to better understand the needs of the students, the faculty, staff and administration have implemented comprehensive methods of assessment. The data collection process is used to better understand our strengths and areas for improvement as an institution and to provide methods to improve student success.
