About The Annual Report System

The University's Annual Planning and Reporting System is designed to facilitate and connect the processes of reporting annual achievements and activities, establishing and monitoring progress toward goals, and preparing and submitting resource requests for all organizational levels. The process launches in mid-spring of each year, with cascading reports submitted to academic and administrative leadership during the summer months. Key points are established for interdepartmental review and discussion, taking what is captured within documents off the page and directly into decision making activities. 

An important part of this process is the ability for departments to link their plans and resource requests directly to the University's strategic plan and institutional learning outcomes. Aligning departmental, college, and divisional progress related to these institutional goals helps us to measure and inform our institutional improvement and effectiveness. In spring 2022, the University incorporated a call for all administrative and academic departments to share reflection on how they are supporting, or plan to support, the University's Strategic Plan goal for diversity, equity, and inclusion, as part of each Annual Planning and Reporting Cycle.

The Annual Planning and Reporting Cycle opens each spring on or around April 1. View the 2021-2022 timeline, here.

In collaboration with the Information Technology division, the Office of Planning & Institutional Effectiveness recently launched a new online tool to replace the longstanding electronic Annual Report System in 2019. Based on prior assessments, the new templates and process retain key components related to planning, resource requests, and other aspects of institutional renewal, while addressing needed improvements, all offered through a refreshed design. The system is also the collection point for academic program assessment reporting.  The resulting process serves as an important tool, and archival resource, in furthering and demonstrating our collective work in supporting the mission and goals of the University. The reporting process is managed conjointly by the Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness, and the Office of Institutional Reporting and Data Analytics.
