The Office of Institutional Effectiveness
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness establishes the infrastructure necessary to monitor and track our achievement of mission fulfillment.

This culture of monitoring and evaluation reflects our commitments as a learning community, where mutual accountability and sustainable stewardship are valued, and it acknowledges our obligation to equitably serve in the best interests of constituents.
