Institutional Effectiveness Committee

  • Mr. Fry outlined the need to re-activate the Council's Institutional Effectiveness Committee. He briefly went over the handout that outlined the responsibilities, membership and leadership of this Committee. He recommended that co-chairs, one from the faculty and one from the administrative community, be appointed by the Council. Ms. Nikki Howard, Director of Internal Audit/Assistant to the Chancellor for Compliance has volunteered to serve as the the co-chair for administration portion of the Committee.
