Institutional Effectiveness

Institutional Effectiveness

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness at Earlham College seeks to serve the college community by developing and implementing data reporting standards and systems to support decision-making and strategic planning. When possible, the Office attempts to contextualize the Earlham experience through the use of comparable information from peer higher education institutions and associations. In many ways, the products of this work serve as a mirror, reflecting many snapshots of the Earlham experience. Through this reflection and analysis, the mission of this Office connects with Earlham’s mission and commitment, “to provide the highest quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts….”

More specifically, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness:

  • Provides information that is relevant to the needs of policy and decision-makers of the College
  • Coordinates Earlham’s participation in surveys
  • Responds to inquiries from federal and state government
  • Assists with implementation of assessment strategies across campus
  • Shares data with other colleges and universities
  • Coordinates sharing information with college guide publications
