Institutional Effectiveness is the systematic and continuous process of collecting, analyzing, and distributing data and information linked to goals and outcomes developed by each program to embrace the mission and vision of Lenoir Community College. Institutional Effectiveness is an ongoing, cyclical process composed of goal setting, implementation, evaluation, assessment, and improvement that is applied at every level of the College and involves all faculty, staff, and students. It is a fundamental part of the College’s commitment to continuous improvement of programs and services. At LCC, we are committed to the review of our mission, goals, and objectives, and to the measurement, evaluation, and reporting of the outcomes of our activities to ensure quality service.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness provides administrative assistance, coordination, information, and data analysis for the College’s planning and research activities. The Office works collaboratively with all members of the College to fulfill the educational mission of the North Carolina Community College System and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (Commission on Colleges) while achieving the mission and vision of the College. The office facilitates the incorporation of assessment, planning, and institutional research to evaluate and enhance all academic programs and services.
