FoE Self-Study: New Students

Foundations of Excellence Self-Study: Institutional Philosophy and Assessing Improvement for New Students.

Project Goals

The goal of this project is to conduct a self-study of the institutional philosophy regarding new students? experiences and thereby cultivate learning environments which portray CLC as a gateway to higher education. This explicit philosophy or purpose concerning new students should be consistent with the college?s mission and strategic goals. Through Foundations of Excellence (FoE) dimension committees for Philosophy, Improvement, and Campus Culture, CLC will study how to build and maintain effective practices through assessment and a commitment to continuous improvement to drive institutional change. The Dimension Committees will create an "institutional blueprint for improvement."
