Mission Fulfillment Indicators

Institution-wide Mission Fulfillment Indicators were voted on and accepted by the Institutional Effectiveness Commission, 2/28/2020 and updated on 9/2/2020.

Below are Lane’s Mission Fulfillment Indicators. This set of institutional indicators are assessable and verifiable statements or statistics that help identify how we measure mission fulfillment. The four thematic headings represent the major areas of Lane’s mission: "Lane is the community’s college: we provide comprehensive, accessible, quality, learning-centered educational opportunities that promote student success." 

Mission fulfillment is defined as the realization of meaningful goals, embodied by individual student achievement, a quality educational environment, accessible and equitable learning opportunities, and responsive community engagement. The College undertakes a regular review of pertinent data to determine the extent to which Lane has made progress towards these goals, as measured through a set of institutional indicators and attendant thresholds. Mission fulfillment will be evaluated against a benchmark of 70% of indicators at or above established thresholds within each of the four goals.

Student success is defined as the journey through which students develop, progress toward, and achieve their goals. Please note that many of the indicators will assess access and equity since wherever possible they will be disaggregated by student demographics in accordance with NWCCU Standard 1.D.2.
