Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative

The Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) is a collaborative, grant-funded effort between the Chancellor’s Office, the Success Center for California Community Colleges, the ASCCC, the RP Group, and other consultation groups within the CCC system. The goal of the initiative is to advance institutional effectiveness in the California community colleges, in order to enhance the system’s ability to serve students and support their success. In the process, the IEPI hopes to significantly reduce the number of accreditation sanctions and audit issues.

An important focus of the grant is to draw on the expertise and innovation from within the CCC system, in order to advance best practice and help individual colleges avoid potential pitfalls.

There are three major components of the initiative:
1. Develop a framework of indicators and college/district goals (SB 852 and SB 860).
2. Make Technical Assistance Teams (called Partnership Resource Teams) available to colleges who express interest in receiving assistance.
3. Enhance professional development opportunities for colleges related to institutional effectiveness.
