The Mission, Effectiveness, Resources, and Improvement Team (MERIT) uses annual and historic performance data to assess the extent to which we have achieved and/or are making progress toward the achievement of our mission and strategic goals. They are responsible for:

  • shepherding the college's work to remain fully accredited,
  • monitoring the assessment of institutional success in fulfillling our mission,
  • identifying areas needing to improve, and
  • developing strategies for improvement.

Contacts:  Ann Buchele and Justin Smith

Please see the MERIT Report Cards for more detailed assessment information.
