Key Performance Indicators: Focusing on Student Success

How do we know that we’re doing well as a community college? We use facts and data to measure our students’ progress, holding ourselves and others accountable for achieving higher levels of student success. We strategically align college activities toward student success and hold ourselves and others accountable for it. We set high expectations and develop a plan that includes key performance indicators (KPIs) that tell us how well our students – and our programs – are doing. We compare our performance against peer institutions, and different areas develop a set of improvement strategies to help achieve the targets.
