How are we contributing to assessment initiatives on our campuses, to improve institu-tional effectiveness, prepare for accreditation, and shape quality and best practices?
We work collaboratively both inside and outside the institution in analysis and reporting of data. What's working on your campus?
Via the use of institutional data, we can provide guidance in the development of re-sources, such as: faculty, staff, facilities and programs on campus. How are you shaping that process?
What effective actions have you taken in your work to further engage in evolving campus decisions about student matriculation, retention, student profile, and students' experiences?
Data management and analysis are rapidly evolving with new tools. What steps are you taking?
Effective leadership of IR on campus means internal operations and staffing are in order. What can we learn about how it's evolving for your department?
