Institutional Effectiveness Council (IEC)


At Lake Tahoe Community College, the Board of Trustees established the Institutional Effectiveness Council (IEC) to serve as the official body on campus to provide faculty, staff, administrators, and students the opportunity to participate in the governance and consensus decision-making processes of the College in areas specified in the Functions listed below. The IEC recognizes that ethical and effective leadership resides throughout the institution and encourages all constituents to participate in an ongoing effort to improve the practices, programs and services of the College. When ideas for improvement have policy, budget or other significant institution-wide implications, the IEC provides a process for effective discussion, planning and implementation. The IEC also recognizes and respects that other organizations on campus have areas of responsibility for college governance issues.
