Standard 5: Mission Fulfillment, Adaptation, and Sustainability
5.A Mission Fulfillment
5.A.1 Assessment of Accomplishments (regular, systematic, participatory, self-reflective,
and evidence-based)
EITC uses a systematic evaluation and planning process to achieve our mission and to
improve overall effectiveness on campus. Processes are in place to identify areas of concern
and to find ways to change or improve all aspects of campus life.
Assessment at all levels of EITC is accomplished through the Noel-Levitz Survey, which is
conducted annually in the fall. This survey shows areas of satisfaction or dissatisfaction
among students, faculty and staff at EITC. For example, in 2013 the survey indicated that
students and faculty felt they were inadequately served in the Student Service Office and
the Library. Consequently employees participated in professionalism training throughout
the next year. As a result, the 2014 survey showed a marked improvement in satisfaction.
The additional training improved the perception of a positive educational environment for
students and faculty. The improvement in the fall 2014 survey was shared at the fall 2015
in-service for all faculty and staff.
EITC uses three types of evaluation for faculty that allows for improvement or additional
training to be provided. Faculty are evaluated by students, supervisors and by peer
evaluators. Faculty are selected by supervisors for semester evaluations and the peer
evaluation is done on a rotating basis. Supervisors conduct performance evaluations with
faculty yearly during spring semester. Suggestions for improvements may be identified and
positive changes implemented based on findings.
EITC’s goal to provide superior educational services led to in-service training on “micro-
messaging” during the fall of 2015. This important topic encourages males and females to
enter non-traditional professions to find personal and workforce success. Faculty were also
given a “best practices” booklet with additional tools for the classroom.
Advisory Council Meetings are held each year for every program on campus. Industry
representatives meet to discuss new techniques and up-coming changes they see in their
industry and make recommendation for PTE programs.
