Strategic Planning

We play leadership and supporting roles in institutional strategic planning efforts, with a focus on evaluating the success and impact of planning and performance goals and outcomes.

We build, maintain, and evolve the institutional data and knowledge infrastructure, including data warehouse development and management, data definitions and context, and data governance efforts on campus.

Institutional Effectiveness

We support institutional effectiveness through an accountability-focused, research-oriented, data-informed application of continuous improvement activities and practices. Institutional effectiveness serves both strategic and operational purposes, facilitating efficient, effective, and impactful workings of the institution and all of its components.
