Serving higher education since 1975, The IDEA Center is a nonprofit organization that helps institutions improve teaching, learning, and leadership. The Center’s services are built on an extensive, nation-wide research program, supporting evaluation and development of both programs and people. The IDEA Student Ratings of Instruction system helps faculty solicit feedback and evaluate teaching as it relates to student learning. The IDEA Feedback Instruments for Department Chairs and Administrators allow leaders to assess how their personal and institutional objectives are realized. The IDEA Center also has a benchmarking service that allows campuses to compare their results with peer institutions (www.theideacenter.org).
