Institutional Effectiveness Committee

The Institutional Effectiveness Committee (IEC) is a university wide committee with a central role in the university's process to improve institutional effectiveness.  The committee's charge is to establish policies and practices to support program review for academic programs, co-curricular programs, and administrative units.  The IEC is divided into two sub-committees: one sub-committee chaired by a faculty member responsible for academic program review; the other sub-committee chaired by an administrative member responsible for administrative program review.

The Institutional Effectiveness Committee will:

- Design, implement, and evaluate the program review guidelines and processes.  The academic sub-committee examines academic program review guidelines/processes and the administrative sub-committee examines administrative program review.

- Review annually the program review action plans and consider opportunities for collaboration across the University in order to improve efficiencies, synergies, and effectiveness.

- Review and assess progress on program action plans mid-way through the program review cycle.


The membership of the academic sub-committee in IEC will be: Five faculty members appointed by Academic Council for three year staggered terms from the following bodies/units: One from the College, a non-COP faculty member from the Stockton campus, one from Graduate Studies Committee, one from Dentistry, one from Law, the Vice Provost for Strategy and Educational Effectiveness, one undergraduate student appointed by ASUOP for one or two-year terms, and one staff member from Student Life, appointed by the Vice President for Student Life.

The membership of the administrative sub-committee in IEC will be: Eight staff members appointed by the President: the AVP for Planning or President's designate, Business & Finance, Development, Student Life, Technology, Athletics, one from the San Francisco campus, one from the Sacramento campus, and one faculty member (appointed by Academic Council).  Staff members will serve three-year staggered terms.
