Institutional Effectiveness


Southern Regional Technical College (SRTC) defines Institutional Effectiveness (IE) as the positive correlation of results to expectations. SRTC designed and implemented an institutional effectiveness system that is ongoing, integrated, and includes College-wide research-based planning and evaluation processes. The IE system integrates specific research, data collection, evaluation, assessment, analysis, planning, budgeting, and implementation processes.

The IE system provides for a systematic review of College Mission, Goals, and Outcomes. It ensures that expected outcomes of all units and programs and program student learning outcomes are identified and assessed; results are used for improvement in planning and budgeting; plans are implemented and evaluated; and improvements are documented. The process is designed to continuously improve programs, services, and student learning and to demonstrate the progress of the College in fulfilling its stated Mission.

Perkins Plans


The Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act, P.L. 109-270, was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President in August 2006. The purpose of the law is to “help develop more fully the academic, career and technical skills of secondary and postsecondary students,” and to “assist students in meeting (the challenging academic and technical) standards, including preparation for high-skill, high-wage or high-demand occupations in current or emerging professions.

To receive Carl Perkins funds, eligible postsecondary technical colleges must have a completed and approved local plan and funding application. The Technical College System of Georgia distributes Carl Perkins federal funds to eligible postsecondary technical colleges within Georgia.
