Meet the New VP of IERPA


Colette Catania is the new vice president of Institutional Effectiveness, Research, Planning, and Assessment (IERPA) at Volunteer State Community College. She comes most recently from Southwest Tennessee Community College in Memphis where she held a similar position. IERPA is charged with improving performance at the college by collecting and analyzing data, and providing that data and analysis to the college community, public, governmental agencies, and various organizations.

“I’m passionate about accreditation and assessment. It drives organizational change,” Catania said. “It’s an opportunity to make an impact on the college by using data to steer institutional and classroom decision making. I want to make data readily accessible, visible, and transparent at Vol State through business intelligence software. I will be working closely with faculty to help improve the student experience by using data to inform change and improve student learning in the classroom. Generally, I want to open the lines of communication across the college and look forward to engaging in discussions within the college community.”

Catania also served in higher education at Saint Leo University in Florida, working in Graduate Studies. She holds an associate of science degree from Saint Petersburg College in Florida; a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management and Applied Organizational Leadership from Saint Petersburg College; a Master of Business Administration in Marketing from Saint Leo University; and a Doctorate of Business Administration, also from Saint Leo University.
