1.A.3 Acceptable Threshold, Extent, or Degree of Mission Fulfillment
EITC utilizes many means for determining mission fulfillment.
The Noel-Levitz Survey
,
administered to students and employees annually, is based on indicators of the college’s core
themes. In 2012, it showed less than a 1% discrepancy between perceived importance of a
given item (for example safety and security) and perceived reality in all areas.
The Noel-Levitz
Survey
results are included on evaluators’ jump drives for easy reference.
Intended learning outcomes, measured at both the program and the course level, keep faculty
focused on ways to sustain good practices that continually improve student learning and
performance. Engaging students with these outcomes helps them to reflect on both the tasks
ahead, and what they are accomplishing as the semester progresses. All programs and courses
have learning outcomes developed with associated assessment measures, results, and planning
criteria included in a matrix format. Examples of these were provided in the
2012 Findings
Response Report to the Commission.
Performance evaluations of faculty are multiple and varied (evaluations by manager, peer, and
student), which leads to an awareness and commitment to implementing positive changes in
the classroom.
Faculty, staff, and administration are actively involved in state committees and professional
organizations, which keep them abreast of new requirements and initiatives. Professional
development opportunities, although limited, occur both on and off campus and offer new
ideas and methodologies to instructors and staff.
The continual refinement of the evaluative processes across campus has resulted in a greater
confidence in the College’s ability to attain results that will lead to continuing success.
All of these measures, along with a great sense of collegiality and enthusiasm, will result in a
valued and vibrant mission fulfillment.
Standard 1.B. Core Themes
1. Supportive
EITC provides a safe, clean, inviting, and functional campus setting, including comprehensive
student support from pre-enrollment through employment (Admissions, Financial Aid,
Placement, Foundation, Library, Business office, Center for New Directions, Tutoring Center).
The college has primarily utilized the
Noel-Levitz Survey
to measure performance in 1.A through
1.C. We have exceeded our
desired outcome
of less than a 1.0 gap between perceived
importance of safety and security and perceived reality.
Objectives, rationale, indicators, and indicator achievements related to this core theme are
