IEMs at a glance
Institutional Effectiveness Measures (IEMs) are ten core effectiveness measures to support the operations of institutional goals and objectives as defined in the College’s Strategic Plan.
These further support the five performance measures set forth by the University of Hawaii Community Colleges, aligning the College’s planning efforts with those of the UHCC system.

The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) asks students about their college experience — how they spend their time; what they feel they have gained from their classes; how they assess their relationships and interactions with faculty, counselors, and peers; what kinds of work they are challenged to do; how the college supports their learning; and so on.
The College uses five CCSSE benchmarks as institutional effectiveness measures:
- Active and collaborative learning
- Academic challenge
- Student effort
- Faculty-student interaction
- Support for learners
