Understanding
Institutional
Effectiveness
What it is
What it isn’t
Why it’s important
What is
“institutional effectiveness?”
Systematic, explicit and documented
process of measuring performance against
the mission in all aspects of an institution
In essence:
 What did we say we were going to do?
 How do we know we’ve done it?
 How well did we do it?
 How are we going to do it better?
Collect data and analyze
outcomes
Identify goals and valid
indicators of progress for each
goal (aka metrics); identify
thresholds of success (targets)
for each metric
Closing
the
Loop
Interpret outcomes;
communicate outcomes; track
outcomes over time where
appropriate and identify where
improvements are needed
Implement
changes/modifications that are
expected to improve outcomes
The process of evaluating a unit’s effectiveness builds
on MUSC Excellence

What institutional effectiveness isn’t
(or shouldn’t be)
Imbalanced as primarily a top-down or
bottom up exercise

Top down: Standardized process and centralized documentation

Bottom up: Goal setting; assessment tools; target setting;
determination of how to respond to results
Unsustainable

Must be continuous, thus must be both useful and easy
Emphasize success over improvement

Targets should be meaningful and ambitious—the ultimate purpose
is to afford continuous quality improvement (not marketing)
Why it’s important
1.
It is the basis of accountability and
continuous quality improvement
2.
Demonstrates sound stewardship of
resources
3.
Inspires students’ and other
stakeholders’ trust and confidence
4.
It is required for academic
accreditation (both professional
accreditation and institutional
accreditation)
