Administrative Assessment

Every administrative unit of the college completes an annual assessment in alignment with their divisional mission statements. The Administrative Assessment Cycle depicts the process that occurs in conjunction with these activities.

Unit leaders, in collaboration with their respective department members, identify measurable objectives which are aligned to the Middle States Standards for Accreditation and the College strategic goals. For each objective an associated task, measurement, and target date is established and recorded using the  Administrative Assessment Plan template. Members of the President’s Cabinet provide the President with regular updates on progress being made in their respective divisions toward meeting their identified goals. These updates provide evidence of how each division is contributing to the achievement of the strategic goals. This information is included in the administrative reports that are shared at monthly meetings of the Board of Trustees. 

At the end of the academic year, each division reviews its assessment plan and documents the status of task completion. A presentation of divisional highlights and accomplishments from the year is presented to the Board of Trustees. Growth opportunities for the College based on institutional priorities, the results of administrative and academic assessment processes, and community needs are discussed. 

The administrative units that fall within this assessment cycle are as follows:
