The Institutional Effectiveness (IE) committee promotes and oversees integrated planning.  It is a coordinating body that reviews proposals from Academic Senate, Classified Senate, Student Services, Administrative Services, and students and that evaluates these proposals to determine their potential impact. With assistance from participatory governance committees, IE will connect these individual proposals with larger college planning processes and/or documents.
