This webinar is a collaboration with the Association for Higher Education Effectiveness (AHEE), and the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)

How can we demonstrate that integrated institution effectiveness (IIE) is worthwhile? Daniel Seymour offers a straightforward three-part narrative that links “designing IIE” to the act of “creating coherence” which then enables an institution to “demonstrate its responsibility” to its stakeholders.

With every aspect of institutions under scrutiny – for budget and other reasons – Institutional Effectiveness offices must also demonstrate to their stakeholders how they add value.

  1. Articulate the intended benefit of IIE within the institution.
  2. Connect that benefit to external stakeholders as well.
  3. Articulate key steps toward designing an Integrated Institutional Effectiveness function.
