2015 Monitoring Report Update

On September 1, 2015 the College submitted the required Monitoring Report to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The Report was the culmination of more than a year of hard work and collaborative efforts by many faculty and staff representing almost every academic and administrative area across the campus.  Some of the highlights from the Report are:

  • Organizational changes to better sustain the Institutional Assessment System, including creating and staffing the Office of Accountability and Assessment; created and filled new position: Director of Assessment.
  • Assessment of high impact practices by committees/task forces resulted in increased funding to support such practices;
  • Information from several task force reports contributed to a plan for developing an Academic Success Center;
  • Introduced a comprehensive quality and improvement assessment process:  Periodic Administrative Unit Assessment for administrative and educational support units;
  • Restructured General Education Administration with four distinct tasks: ensuring access, fidelity, assessment, and innovation;
  • Created the General Education Assessment Committee to develop new assessment plan, tools, and sources;
  • Increased resource allocations to support general education assessment;
  • Continued resource allocations for programmatic and general education “closing the loop” activities 2015-2016;
  • Continued progress on Strategic Plan goals and using the assessment results to inform budget and resource allocation decisions.

The entire College community is to be commended for their dedication to this process and the College’s promise to continue to make student learning our highest priority.

These actions and plans will continue to strengthen and build a stronger foundation for assessment at all levels at the College. The College is committed and prepared to support these efforts to keep assessment at the forefront and as an integral part of academic and administrative decision making.  This vision will support the College’s mission and ensure that the success of our students remains the highest priority.

Any questions regarding the Monitoring Report should be sent to either Dr. Mary Ellen Zuckerman or Ms. Frances Dearing.
