Results Outreach Committee

The Results Outreach Committee (ROC) is a sub-committee of MCC’s Student Outcomes Committee(SOC). Its mission is to provide a mechanism and the resources to support faculty and/or departments in developing outcomes-based initiatives directly linked to assessment results data.

What is the purpose of ROC?

ROC was initiated to promote the use of outcomes data in relation to faculty development, pedagogy, and academic climate. Furthermore, the committee has a mandate to encourage and stimulate faculty, departments, interdisciplinary teams to develop specific outcomes-based initiatives or projects based on assessment data and Provide the mechanisms and/or resources for these outcomes-based initiatives.

What is a ROC proposal?

ROC proposals are submitted by faculty seeking to develop instructional initiatives or projects based on MCC’s outcomes assessment results. Preference is given to proposals that involve groups of faculty or entire departments and demonstrate a long-term benefit to students and the academic climate. Interdisciplinary teams are encouraged.

Compensation depends upon the nature of the project and might include grants, resources or support, stipends, expenditures, equipment, or recognition. Proposals will be reviewed by an ad-hoc faculty committee comprising SOC and ROC members.
