Planning & Institutional Effectiveness



The Office of Planning & Institutional Effectiveness leads institutional planning and improvement activities, with a focus on integrating the collection, analysis, and sharing of University data and outcomes to demonstrate how the University is fulfilling its mission and meeting its goals. The office shepherds the development and implementation of the University's strategic plan, support plans, and annual progress reporting, including the development of strategic metrics and other performance and outcome measures.

In this work, the office shares a strong, collaborative relationship with the Offices of Institutional Reporting and Data Analytics and Educational Assessment, and with many other partners across campus to facilitate collaborative planning and further a culture of evidence-based decision making.  

The Office manages the University's institutional accreditation with the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, and related policy and compliance activities. Planning & Institutional Effectiveness also coordinates institutional policy & governance, including academic policy related to academic planning, accreditation, and compliance.
