Degree Program Improvement
Educational effectiveness at all levels of the university is determined through the assessment cycle. Each academic unit develops goals/objectives related to its mission; these are, in turn, related to the university mission. The goals and objectives are annually assessed based on stated criteria. If the criteria are not met, the academic unit puts into place strategies to improve.
Mississippi College publishes statements of its goals for student achievement and the success of students in achieving these goals. These goals and outcomes are available on our Institutional Data website.
