About IEPI

The Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) is a statewide collaborative effort to help advance the effective practices of the California Community Colleges and, in the process, significantly reduce the number of accreditation sanctions and state and federal audit issues. IEPI's comprehensive professional development and technical assistance programs, all funded by the state, overlay every division of the Chancellor's Office, including academic affairs, student services, workforce & economic development, research, and fiscal.

Most importantly, IEPI will enhance the system’s ability to serve its students effectively and improve student success in measurable ways, thereby aligning work across the system with the Vision for Success goals. An important focus of the initiative is to draw on the exceptional expertise and innovation that exists within the system in advancing effective practices and avoiding potential pitfalls.
