Cuyamaca College was able to apply for and receive technical assistance in both Spring 2017 and Fall 2018 to assist us in improving our systems, structures, processes, and infrastructure to support the following:

  • Learning Outcome Assessment,
  • Integrated Planning,
  • and Effective Participatory Governance.

With the assistance of our assigned Partnership Resource Teams (PRTs), which included peers with expertise from each of our focus areas from other California Community Colleges, we developed two IEPI Innovation and Effectiveness Plan and applied for an IEPI Seed Grant to implement the plan. In Fall 2017 and Spring 2020, the College received follow-up visits from our PRT members to assess our progress in meeting the plan objectives.
