If community colleges are going to fulfill their core mission, essential and ongoing assessments must be done to structure and environment of student success and completion. –Walter Bumphus
The purpose of this site is to provide a framework for the assessment of institutional effectiveness. This framework includes the assessment of student learning, teaching effectiveness, engagement, retention, persistence, graduation/program completion, program review, and student and employer satisfaction.
The Community College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) as a branch campus of the University of the District of Columbia. As such, the College recognizes that all its activities and initiatives must relate to the assessment system that correlates with the University’s mission and vision. However, the College also recognizes its own mission and vision as an open admissions college with the goal of becoming a Comprehensive Community College that will be part of the public system of higher education in the District. Lastly, the site reveals how the College is meeting the standards related to Institutional and Educational Effectiveness.
