Mission of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness

The overarching charge of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness at USCA is to provide internal and external constituencies with an accurate and complete understanding of how the institution is advancing its mission to challenge students to acquire and develop the skills, knowledge and values necessary for success in a dynamic global environment.

To meet this challenge, the IE Office uses a multifaceted and dynamic approach that integrates the collection and analysis of institutional data with the coordination of the assessment of student learning outcomes from academic units, general education, and co-curricular programs in an ongoing effort to improve programs and services throughout the university. The IE Office disseminates assessment results and institutional data to support institutional planning and decision-making as well as advancing quality and innovation in the teaching and learning process, co-curricular programs, and other administrative units.
