Welcome to the online presence of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment at SUM Bible College and Theological Seminary. The office is integral to the maintenance and improvement of quality academic programs and accreditation standards. There are three main areas of the office’s function in support of the institution: research, assessment and accreditation. Assessment outcomes related to the college’s mission and goals are used to support the strategic planning process for the institution. From our online pages, our faculty, students and the public can access our resources to know about the effectiveness of our educational programs and assessments.
