Institutional Effectiveness Committee
The function of the IEC is to spearhead, organize, and oversee assessment activities at the College, and to engage in data collection/compilation projects that help the College meet its near- and long-term institutional goals (as articulated by the President and Senior Staff). Haverford’s approach to institutional improvement arises from our institutional vision and goals, and is implemented through comprehensive evidence-based planning and institutional structures for assessment and evaluation. A summary of institutional planning, assessment and significant outcomes is available here.
The committee makes recommendations to the College’s academic and administrative departments regarding data gathering and information sharing, will monitor departmental compliance with assessment activities, and will help to establish a visible structure for the summary, documentation, and communication of assessment efforts at the College. The IEC will assists academic departments in student learning assessment projects , and will facilitate the sharing of information from the College’s data systems in order to assist all departments in evaluating whether they are meeting their goals.
