Planning & Institutional Effectiveness



Institutional Effectiveness

LMC Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) 2015-2016 Goals


Institutional Effectiveness is a comprehensive term, which includes effectiveness of all college operations (instruction, student services, economic and workforce development, fiscal, technology etcetera), compliance with regulations, as well as student success (student learning and achievement).


The College monitors its effectiveness through self-evaluation and assessment documented through the program review and accreditation processes.  Regular reports are completed by the College for the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) and the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), in addition to data that is reported to the CCCCO.


The ACCJC requires the College to have “Institution-Set Standards", which is the level “below which we would not like to fall” (Eligibility Requirement 11, Standards I.B.2, I.B.2 and II.A.1).


The CCCCO requires the College to set “Institutional Effectiveness Goals”, which should be aspirational.


iepi planning resource team - april 11th & may 9th

LMC has been selected to participate in the Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) this semester. The College identified two areas of focus to receive assistance from a Partnership Resource Team (PRT). They are to:

1) Expand Distance Education Offerings and Programs

2) Strengthen Integrated Planning, Resource Allocation, and Institutional Effectiveness.


Due to the nature of the areas of focus, the team will be meeting with several LMC groups. The PRT will be conducting three (3) visits; two occuring this semester and one in the fall 2018 semester. Included below is the OneDrive link to the PRT members, visit schedule, crucial documents and treatment areas of focus:

This is an interactive tool to assist LMC with the CCCCO's new goal setting requirement for the student performance measures identified by the Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative. The Excel spreadsheet (link included below) provides current data and allows you to test different growth scenarios and see the impact in terms of numbers of students.
