Chief Executive Officer
The State Board of Education selects the chief executive officer (CEO) of Eastern Idaho
Technical College by establishing a search committee comprised of a board member,
representatives from the institution, and stakeholders from the local community. The board
delegates appropriate authority and responsibility to the CEO, which is clearly addressed in
state board policy, Section 1.E. The CEO (president) nor any other member of the campus
community chairs or is involved with EITC’s governing board.
EITC’s overall leadership is vested in the President’s Advisory Council, consisting of the
President, the Vice-President for Instruction and Student Affairs, and the Vice President for
Finance and Administration. Members of the council are qualified administrators with
appropriate levels of responsibility and accountability. They work collaboratively across the
various divisions of the college to foster fulfillment of EITC’s mission and core values.
In addition to executive staff, key administrators provide oversight of each major instructional
department, information technology division, student services, library, financial operations and
workforce training. Each of these key managers reports directly to a vice president.
Consistent with the core themes of the college, all faculty members are evaluated in a regular,
systematic, substantive and collegiate manner as prescribed by Policy 111, Faculty Evaluation,
in the
Policy and Procedures Manual
. Faculty members are appropriately qualified and
sufficient in number to ensure the integrity and continuity of educational objectives, policies,
and programs.
Educational Program
EITC’s educational programs include appropriate content and rigor for Associate of Applied
Science (AAS) degrees and Certificates. Curriculum is developed to align with industry
standards and is vetted by each program’s advisory council. Each program and course have
clearly identified and published student learning outcomes. These outcomes are evaluated and
measured on a yearly basis and form the basis of program and course improvements.
General Education and Related Instruction
All AAS degree programs contain the requisite 15 credits of general education courses in the
three areas stipulated by both NWCCU and the Idaho SBOE: six credits in
English/Communications, three credits in mathematics/computation, three credits in social
science/human relations, and three elective credits

computation and human relations, but they have the option of combining communication and
