Institutional Effectiveness Plan - Cleveland CC Shelby, NC

CCC Institutional Effectiveness Plan

Cleveland Community College’s Institutional Effectiveness Plan is an on-going, institution-wide process of planning and assessment for the purpose of continuous improvement and to provide evidence the College is achieving its mission.

The first component of the plan consists of the review, revision, and approval of the College Mission. This process takes place every three years and was most recently completed in May, 2019. The most recent strategic planning process included the process of review and, revision of the College Mission. At a Board Retreat in October, 2018, a consensus to revise the Mission was reached. Going forward, the President’s Cabinet will review the Mission, and vote to either reaffirm or revise the Mission. The Mission will then presented to the Board of Trustees for final approval or reaffirmation. Because the Mission serves as the foundation around which all other planning takes place, this process plays a crucial role in determining the direction for the College.

The second component is the College’s Strategic Plan, encompassing the Vision, Mission, Values, Institutional Definition of Student Success, Institutional Goals and Objectives, and Environmental Scanning data. The goals and objectives included in the Plan directly support the College Mission.

The third component is the College’s comprehensive program review cycle. The purpose of the program review is for instructional and administrative units to perform an internal review of the programs and services they are offering to students. This ensures course content and methodology, as well as student support services, meet the needs of students and the community. Program reviews are scheduled and completed over a four-year cycle. One-year follow-up reports are required to address any changes that might impact projections for program needs or future issues identified in the initial program review process. All instructional and service-related departments or disciplines participate in the program review process.

Assessment and evaluation of the Personal Assessment of the College Environment (PACE) Climate Survey (2012, 2014, 2016, and 2019) occurs bi-annually as part of the program review cycle. In 2016, the decision was made to move the next climate survey administration to the 2019 spring semester, in order to give new faculty a semester to acclimate to the College before completing the climate survey. The purpose of the survey is to gain an understanding of the organizational climate of the College. Results are shared with all full and part-time employees. Survey reports are analyzed by the President’s Cabinet for discussion, possible future action, and/or incorporation into future strategic plans.
