The Office of Institutional Effectiveness supports the University’s efforts in accreditation, assessment, program development, institutional research, and strategic planning. The office provides guidance for assessment of academic and non-academic outcomes; collects, analyzes and disseminates data to support decision making and policy development; and supports the university strategic planning process.  The efforts of this office are supported by the Institutional Effectiveness Committee.

Institutional Effectiveness Committee


The Institutional Effectiveness Committee provides direction and support of University-wide and academic program effectiveness through the review of academic programs, other programmatic, curricular, and student learning outcomes, operational outcomes, assessment, and evaluation strategies in connection with the University’s mission and planning process.  Although primarily a faculty committee, this committee includes non-faculty members to assist with the oversight of institutional effectiveness across the entire University.
