Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative: Participate, Collaborate, Innovate 

"" 

About

The Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) is a collaborative effort to help advance the institutional effectiveness of California Community Colleges and, in the process, significantly reduce the number of accreditation sanctions and audit issues. Most importantly, IEPI will enhance the system’s ability to effectively serve students. An important focus of the grant is to draw on the exceptional expertise and innovation from within the system in advancing best practices and avoiding potential pitfalls. For more detailed information, please read our FAQs.

Partnership Resource Teams

partnership resource teams

IEPI provides technical assistance through Partnership Resource Teams, or PRTs. This new, “colleagues helping colleagues” type of technical assistance is available to colleges, districts and centers that express interest in receiving support on self-identified issues. A short Letter of Interest is submitted by the institution’s CEO. Team members are drawn from a pool of volunteer experts, formed together based on a process of matching their knowledge and experience with the areas of focus identified by the institutions, and then deployed for three visits. The first visit is for the initial gathering of information, the second visit is to help the institution develop improvement strategies and timelines in an Innovation and Effectiveness Plan, and the third visit is to provide follow-up support. Additional follow-up visits are available as needed. Grants of up to $200,000 in seed money are available to institutions that receive team visits and submit their Innovation and Effectiveness Plans.
