Institutional Effectiveness Reports

The following institutional effectiveness reports provide in-depth information, studies, and research about the college as related to student success, student equity, human resources, economic impact, and programs.

The President’s Human Resources Prioritization and Recommendations Report includes recommendations that were informed by campus-wide governance processes and is an effort to effectively plan for identified needs, as well as illuminate the process and rationale for decision making in a complex environment. The purpose of this report is to assist the College and District in efforts to intentionally use data to plan for future growth as well as effectively meet the current student and employer demands for academic and workforce education. Additionally, the report aids the College in the systematic prioritization of staffing needs over the coming years as the college explores reorganization through a Guided Pathways framework and begins expansion to additional locations. This report will assist the District in fulfilling its mission to “promote exemplary educational opportunities and to provide safe, inclusive, and supportive learning environments leading to student success and global competitiveness which will transform our region.” Furthermore, the report is designed to provide the information and data to support and inform college stakeholders on the prioritization process as well as make recommendations for additional procedures and metrics that could be utilized in future staffing considerations.

Qualitative Research:

The following qualitative research studies were conducted as a result of goals identified in the Fresno City College 2014 Student Equity Plan. 

The Community College Equity Assessment Lab (CCEAL) Reports:

  • Community College Success Measure (CCSM) is a survey designed by the CCEAL as a comprehensive tool for evaluating student success in community colleges with a focus on students who have been historically underserved in postsecondary education. The CCSM was developed to examine predictors of community college student success. The CCSM’s items and scales are specifically designed to measure experiences and factors directly impacting the success of community college students of color. These factors include non-cognitive outcomes (e.g. locus of control, utility, academic self-efficacy), environmental factors (e.g. finances, family responsibilities), campus ethos (e.g. campus climate, perceptions of care), and identity (e.g. gender and race/ethnicity).
  • Community College – Instructional Development Inventory (CC-IDI) is an institutional assessment tool designed to inform professional development programming for instructional faculty. The report has two components, threshold scores based on self-reported practice and faculty members' recommendations for areas of professional development focus. 
  • Community College – Staff Development Inventory (CC-SDI) is an institutional assessment tool designed to inform professional development programming for student services personnel who support community college students. The report has two components, threshold scores based on self-reported practice and staff members' recommendations for areas of professional development focus. 

  • Analysis of the Economic Impact and Return on Investment of Education (by EMSI, 2018) study investigates the economic impacts created by FCC on the business community and the benefits that the college generates in return for the investments made by its key stakeholder groups—students, taxpayers, and society. The college’s service region consists of Fresno, Kings, Madera, and Tulare Counties. All results reflect student and financial data for fiscal year (FY) 2016-17. Impacts on the regional business community are reported under the economic impact analysis. Results are measured in terms of added income. The returns on investment to students, taxpayers, and society are reported under the investment analysis. (Results pending)
