Institutional Effectiveness


Continual planning and assessment processes are critical to maintaining and improving upon the institutional effectiveness of Wharton County Junior College (WCJC).  Moreover, the institution uses data to monitor institutional outcomes and demonstrate progress toward the achievement of the WCJC mission.  As such, the Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness (PIE) works to promote an institution-wide culture of continuous quality improvement through the systematic review of institutional and unit-driven goals and outcomes.

The Purpose of Planning

The purpose of planning at WCJC is focused on ensuring that all administrative units are operating in a manner that is both efficient and effective.  Efficiency of a unit is focused on ensuring that the resources allocated to a division are being optimized, while efficacy refers to refers to a unit’s ability to achieve desired outcomes and results.  By engaging in continuous planning practices, WCJC units are able to readily identify areas of strength and weakness within their organization, modify their operational practices based on practical results, and improve upon desired outcomes.
