About Us

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness is organized to support the demands of meaningful institutional effectiveness planning and implementation efforts throughout the college. Institutional effectiveness requires the annual articulation of expected outcomes, the development and implementation of appropriate means for assessing results, the collection and analysis of data, and on-going professional development in order to act on assessment results.

Strategic Planning

At Valencia, we continue to believe in our students and their ability to change their lives for the better. Now we will turn our attention not just to students on our campuses, but our community at large—and inject in our community the same belief, that with the right guidance and help, we can work with our community to transform Central Florida.
