Institutional Effectiveness

The mission of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness is to facilitate the systematic, research-based, enterprise-wide planning and evaluation process to support continuous improvement throughout UTHSC.

 

What is Institutional Effectiveness?

IE is a set of ongoing, systematic processes that are designed to ensure that an institution is effectively achieving its mission and continuously striving to improve. It includes planning, identifying or developing outcomes (including student learning outcomes for academic programs), evaluating the extent to which those outcomes have been achieved, and using the results of the evaluations in concert with other data where appropriate to improve programs, services, and student achievement. 

IE Functions

We provide a variety of services and consultations in the following broad areas:

  • Accreditation (SACSCOC and support for disciplinary accreditation)
  • Strategic Planning (including evaluating the extent to which UTHSC is fulfilling its mission and achieving its strategic goals)
  • Assessment of Student Learning
  • Institutional Effectiveness of Non-Instructional Units
  • Academic support (New program procedures and processes)
