Institutional Effectiveness (IE)

Institutional Effectiveness Summit

Mark your calendars! Paul Chown and the Institutional Effectiveness Committee will host the annual IE Summit on Saturday, April 13. The summit will focus on the Vision for Success Goals, and an evite will be sent to everyone soon. The summit is a great way to learn more about the college and interact with new people, and you DO NOT have to be a member of the IEC to participate.

Committee Planning

The effectiveness of CR’s Academic Senate and District Planning Committees is a strong indicator of our effectiveness as an institution. For the many of us who sit on committees, please help us get off to a good start next year.

  • Discuss next year’s committee membership. Who can continue serving and who needs to be replaced?
    • The Academic Senate Co-Presidents are responsible for faculty appointments. Gary Sokolow and Michael Dennis will be the co-presidents next year.
    • Contact CSEA President Tami Engman for appointment of classified staff.
    • Contact the Management Council President Brady Reed for appointment of managers.
    • Contact the ASCR Faculty Advisor Gary Sokolow for student appointment.
  • Discuss when your committee(s) will meet next year. Please make all attempts to keep the meeting time the same each year.

Mid-semester celebration

CR’s Klamath-Trinity Instructional Site may be small in size but it is big in heart. Last Tuesday, faculty and staff at the site showed students overwhelming support and encouragement at the Mid-Semester Celebration. Faculty commended students in their classes for their academic achievements and for being “most valuable” to everyone in the class. I was touched to see how proud students were of each other. I want to congratulate KT for making this event a continued success.

Reminders of Upcoming Changes

I want to make sure everyone is aware of the following changes:

  • CR will be moving to an online bookstore in spring 2020. Faculty will start adopting books using the new bookstore online adoption tool in fall 2019. Adoptions made this semester for fall 2019 will continue status quo through Follett.
  • In the near future, faculty and staff will receive their own individual print code. The Pcounter system will be used to manage and track printing. The system will be piloted in the summer and rolled out to everyone in fall 2019.

Fast Fact

Fall 2018:

95% of registered students who filed a FAFSA/Dream Act Application qualified for fee waiver, grants, or scholarships.

88% of registered students who filed a FAFSA/Dream Act Application qualified for fee waivers.

65% of registered students who filed a FAFSA/Dream Act Application qualified for grants or scholarships for books/supplies.

53% of all registered students filed a FAFSA/Dream Act Application. Filing a FAFSA/Dream Act Application and the CR Scholarship Application dramatically increases the likelihood that students will receive some form of aid.

Encourage all students fill out the FAFSA/Dream Act and apply for scholarships!
