Mission Statement

Office for Institutional Effectiveness Mission

The mission of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) is to provide leadership and guidance to the Board of Trustees, executive team, faculty, and staff in support of accreditation processes at the College of Charleston.  Responsible for submitting accurate and timely reports to the College's regional accreditor and conducting enterprise level surveys and analytical studies, the OIE consulting team collaborates with constituents to implement nationally-recognized practices and standards, to build capacity for continual evidence-based improvement, and to demonstrate integrity in all reporting.

The College of Charleston is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).  SACSCOC defines Institutional Planning and Effectiveness in the Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement.
